Comedie of Errors in 50 words or less:

Two sets of identical twins, masters (Antipholus) and servants (Dromio), were separated by a shipwreck. Antipholus of Syracuse arrives in Ephesus and Adriana mistakes him for her husband (E.Antipholus).. S.Antipholus gets a gold chain E.Antipholus ordered, but then E.Antipholus is arrested for not paying. Confusion reigns until Antipholus' parents are found.

OPS Fest is proud to bring admission-free Shakespeare back to the Portland Public Parks this year. The OPS Fest company of skilled, flexible actors will perform with occasional interruptions of songs, dances, and sketches throughout. Shows begin at 7pm and the audience is welcome to arrive during the hour before to watch the pregame dance & fight rehearsals. Children, picnics and leashed pups are always welcome.
