English Majors Attend Comedy of Errors

October 5th, 2015 § 0

Last Friday evening, Professor Emeritus of English Luke Reinsma attended Seattle Shakespeare Company’s production of the Comedy of Errors with students from his senior Shakespeare course. Professor Reinsma explains why this particular work is a good way to start off a quarter studying the Bard: “this early play of Shakespeare is based on a Roman comedy by Plautus, about two twins who get mixed up with one another in Ephesus – except, Shakespeare being Shakespeare, he doubles the fun by pairing each of them with yet another set of mixed-up twins, who are their servants. Much comic mayhem to follow!”

Attending productions by the Seattle Shakespeare Company has become something of a tradition associated with enrollment in the department’s Shakespeare course, bringing to life for students less familiar with Shakespeare the obvious delights his plays contain.
