This world premiere comedy leaves the nutcrackers, misers and elves behind, and instead mashes Twelfth Night, Richard III and A Christmas Carol with historical inaccuracies and slanderous fabrications. In the spirit of Black Adder and Shakespeare in Love, Holiday of Errors (or Much Ado About Stockings) is an irreverent sendup that starts with Will Shakespeare and his trusty leading man, Dickie Burbage, on Christmas Eve 1593. The great Theatre is facing imminent closure as the plague rages through London. Find out what happens to Will and Dickie when they receive an urgent invitation from Queen Elizabeth to perform at Whitehall Palace. Learn More

I liked the play as much as the book! The cast was outstanding.
Quotes & Highlights
- "A fascinating look at the confluence of small-town life, the global drug trade and illegal immigration, and it places Jim Lynch at the forefront of Northwest writers to watch." —Willamette Week
- "Brandon Vanderkool, [is] the most fascinating, memorable, and human character in American fiction since Ignatius J. Reilly of A Confederacy of Dunces ... Border Songs is a masterwork, and Jim Lynch, for my money, is our best new storyteller since Larry McMurtry: deeply in touch with the natural world, the absurdities of our era, and the hearts and minds of his unforgettable and endlessly surprising characters." —Howard Frank Mosher, author
