The Comedy of Errors

Older kids will get a kick out of this inventive staging of Shakespeare's comedy, brought across the pond by U.K. theater company Propeller. Though the language is the Bard's own, the play is updated to the 20th century. Two sets of twins, separated at birth, find themselves in uproarious situations on a getaway island in the 1980s. Silly details—like a mariachi band playing versions of ’80s hits—will have families chuckling. Ages 12 and up.
