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

Quotes & Highlights
- Read a review of two recent books about Austen's enduring literary appeal in the Seattle Times.
Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Emma, and now Sense and Sensibility. Book-It’s fourth Jane Austen adaptation brings audiences back to the sweeping work that began her career.
In Austen’s first published novel (1811), the Dashwood sisters find that love is an unpredictable struggle against the most important social values: family, honor, and wealth. As teens, Elinor and Marianne's family fortunes take a turn when they lose their father, and their welcome in his home, now owned by their half-brother and his overbearing wife. With a move and a few chance meetings, Elinor falls for the intelligent and reserved Edward Ferrars, while Marianne dotes upon the handsome John Willoughby. Through Elinor’s sense and Marianne’s sensibility, this sprightly tale wends along the twisting path of love among the English gentry.
