    A man arrives in a new city to find that everyone knows his name, but thinks he’s someone else. Believed to be one of Shakespeare's earliest plays, this comedy about separated family and mistaken identity is unforgettably poignant and hilarious. This production sets the action in a high fashion house of mirrors where style is commodity, image is identity, and your reflection may be taking over your life.

    Wednesday to Friday - 7:30 p.m.
    Saturday - 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
    Sunday - 2:00 p.m.
    Runtime is 75 minutes.
