FREE SUMMER SHAKESPEARE UNDER THE STARS IN OLNEY

This play, Shakespeare’s “take” on a Roman comedy, is a hilarious introduction to the Bard, especially for kids and those who claim “not to like Shakespeare.” It’s sheer buffoonery (he added a set of twins so the hilarity is quadrupled). And best of all: IT’S FREE:

WHEN: July 18 - 21 at 8:00 PM (Seating starts at 6 PM)
WHERE: The Root Family Stage, Olney Theatre Company, 2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Road, Olney


Take one set of identical twins separated since birth, add a second set as their servants, and throw them all into the same town for a single day. Confusion abounds and hilarity ensues as everyone in the town tries to figure out why these people are behaving so strangely today.

There is limited bleacher seating, so please bring a blanket or chairs to this event! We begin seating as early as 6:00 PM, so bring a picnic basket and enjoy dinner outside before the show.

To make a reservation for this show, please contact the box office at 301.924.3400.
