The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare. Meyer MacLean Theatre, Ontario, Oregon. This concept production was set in the Wild West near the border of the Snake River which separates Oregon from Idaho…where we set our rivalry.

Overview: A set of Idaho twins separated from their brothers at birth go seeking them in Oregon, creating confusion. In this scene one twin (Antipholus) has fallen in love with his sister-in-law’s sister while the other twin (Dromio) is wooed by his brother’s fiancé, Nell.
