A case of mistaken intent results in war. A case of mistaken identity ends in hilarity. John Jay Middle School presents two of Shakespeare’s great Roman plays: the classic tragedy “Julius Caesar” and the fast-moving and delightful “The Comedy of Errors,” directed by David Fritsch.

The plays run Thursday, November 14 through Saturday, November 16, at 7 p.m. with a Saturday matinee at 1 p.m., at John Jay Middle School’s theater. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online through Brown Paper Tickets as well as at the door 30 minutes prior to each performance.
