Striving Artists Theater Company
Striving Artists Theatre Company is a performing arts organization involving local artists, patrons and students dedicated to enriching the community with innovative theater. Through its artistic exploration, SAC is determined to provoke discussion while educating and creating a social dialogue in the community. SAC will expand theatrical horizons and push boundaries, providing a forum for new artistic voices and initiatives. Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness and demonic possession.
