    Director's Note
    Stripping away classical expectations, director Lijesh Krishnan brings a fresh perspective to The Comedy of Errors, setting it in his native India. He takes the story of a restless twin journeying East in search of a long-lost brother and mother, and explores issues of identity (How much of who we are is tied up with how we are perceived and treated?), alienness, and (mis)-communication across cultural divides. An experienced comedic ensemble of 6 women and 6 men brings together elements of romance and farce, along with some exquisite poetry and old Bollywood songs, in a spirited and colorful production that goes beyond surface cultural distinctions to get to the essential humanity of Shakespeare’s plays.
