Betrayal! Mistaken identity! Prison! Execution!
Welcome to an Enchanted Day in Ephesus!
Once upon a time, two sets of twins
Were torn apart by storms, the whim of wind.
The family cleaved for eighteen years, one side
In Ephesus, one in Syracuse abides.
The father seeking son, servant, wife,
Ends his journey and perhaps his life.
The searching brother takes up brother’s house,
A golden chain, his dinner and his spouse,
While loyal matching servants, patiently
Mistake pretty much everything they see.
The mother, did I say? yes she exists,
Has taken up the cloak of an abbess.
Will this day end in execution or
Will our two twins discover the wherefore?
Never mind the confusion, the fray,
There’s sure a celebration at the end of the day.
Please come prepared with a monologue and a song. Choose 2 p.m. or 3 p.m., you will stay for the hour.
Production dates: June 20 to July 24
