ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Will Kempe’s Players (WKP) is producing two Shakespeare plays, Comedy of Errors and Titus Andronicus, for their 2022 summer season. WKP will be performing around the Capital Region from July 9 through August 27.

WKP chose to produce Comedy of Errors and Titus Andronicus because they both explore the value of community and the representation of family on stage, according to Shane Sczepankowski, co-owner of WKP. Comedy of Errors is filled with unexpected role reversals, mistaken identities, and humor from start to finish. Titus Andronicus explores themes of disenfranchisement, desperation, racism, and violence in many forms.
