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
Reviews & Ratings
Bred for the battlefield, the triumphant soldier Coriolanus discovers he is out of his depths when elected to the Roman Senate where the politics can be twice as treacherous as warfare. Behind his meteoric rise is his powerful mother who raised him to be a warrior of no equal. Shakespeare makes politics personal in this tragedy by plumbing the depths of emotions between mother and son, pride and patriotism, ego and honor.
SSC shows are suitable for audiences ages 12 years old and older.
