After more than a year of only virtual programs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Seattle Shakespeare is returning to the parks this summer with a free Wooden O production of “The Comedy of Errors.” Starting July 23, the play will perform in 10 park venues throughout the region through Aug. 8. Seattle Shakespeare Artistic Director George Mount will direct the production.

Appearing in The Comedy of Errors are MJ Daly, Kelly Karcher, Rico Lastrapes, Kate Witt, and R. Hamilton Wright. Set design is by Craig Wollam, costume design by Jocelyne Fowler, and sound design by Robertson Witmer.

Seattle Shakespeare will abide by each city and venue’s safety requirements and will require our patrons to follow those protocols as well. See for www.seattleshakespeare.org for more information.

TICKETS: Wooden O performances are free and open to the public, but donations are encouraged after the show.
