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

If you have seen Tom Stoppard plays before then you know to expect to be confounded, confused and delighted in about equal measures. Though billed as two one act plays, they are actually related. "Cahoots's Macbeth" will make no sense without having first seen "Dogg's Hamlet" ... which is not to say that either will make any sense anyway! The cast did a wonderful job. Some jokes were perhaps carried a bit too far, but, well, this is Tom Stoppard, so that is to be expected.
This production is recommended for those ages six and older.
