Shakespeare by the Sea's other free play this summer, Comedy of Errors, opened on June 22nd.
The first four weeks are at Point Fermin in San Pedro, but then the shows go on the road and play at parks across Los Angeles and Orange Counties, usually near beach communities. Then, at the end, they go back to Point Fermin for the final shows on August 11th and 12th.
If you're in the neighborhood of one of the performances, grab a blanket, a picnic dinner, and enjoy some free Shakespeare under the stars. My daughter and I attended both plays last summer and had a great time.
