Comedy of Errors – The Webseries
Join A.B.L.E.’s teen ensembles for a reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic comedy about mistaken identity!
When Antipholus and Dromio of Syracuse go to their homeland of Ephesus in search of Antipholus’ long lost twin, endless confusion follows in their wake.
The ensembles – 20 young adults with Down syndrome and other developmental differences – will collaborate with a team of teaching artists and volunteer facilitators on a 5 part webseries adapted by A.B.L.E. teaching artist Braden Cleary.
Filmed entirely on Zoom, each episode will cover a different act of Shakespeare’s story. Actors will play multiple roles throughout the series, giving each a chance to showcase different sides of their personalities. They will create their own costumes, props, and Foley sound effects using items found in their homes.
The first episode premieres on Monday, May 18, 2020 on both YouTube and Facebook. A special livestream watch party followed by a Q&A with the ensemble will be available via Facebook Live every Monday night, starting May 18, at 7P CT.
