Students Begin Work on “A Comedy of Errors”

(Presented by Julena Allen, Musa Nkosi and Lance Holtzclaw)

Southwestern’s department of English will enact “The Comedy of Errors” a comedic play written by Shakespeare on April 11-14 in Wharton Auditorium. The story is about two sets of twins who were separated at birth during a shipwreck. The play recounts the journey of how these four twins discover and find each other. Directed and adapted by English professor Kristin Denslow, the play has been modernized into the 20th century, taking place in 1960 Miami.

 

 

Dr. Kristin Denslow, professor of English, will direct this play. “This is a funny, fast paced play,” she says, “but at the end there is a powerful scene of reunion with family.”

Junior nursing major Katelin Brunson will play Adriana, the wife of Dromio of Syracuse. “Something I love about my character is her patience,” she says. “I feel like I can relate to her in that aspect.”

Junior communication major Sierra Hernandez will play Luciana, the sister of Adriana.
“I love how my character gives her married sister advice on everything even though she has no experience of her own,” she says.

Sophomore psychology major TJ Simmons plays Antipholus of Syracuse.
“ ‘I to the world am like a drop of water that in the ocean seeks another drop’, ” he says. “I think that this line displays my character’s serious nature well.”

Junior accounting major Nwanyi Ukegbu plays Dromio of Ephesus, twin brother of Dromio of Syracuse. “I love how sarcastic my character is,” she says. “Even when he’s serious, he’s funny. I wish I was a quick-witted as him.”

Senior English major Brian Barrera plays Dromio of Syracuse.
“ ‘Time himself is bald and therefore to the world’s end will have half followers’, ” he says. “I think this line displays the stress that my character is experiencing well.”
