Just for fun

I had a splendid evening watching the Junior Players, a group of talented high school students who work all summer to perfect their lines, perform “The Comedy of Errors” at Shakespeare Dallas.

This play, you may remember, is “a farce-comedy at times bordering on slapstick….

“Shakespeare had no subtle moral, no lyrical expression of love, no purpose of any kind but to entertain with scenes of hilarious confusion,” according to Frank Magill in Masterplots from the World’s Great Literature.

It was fun to sit in the park, eat a picnic dinner with a fruit tart for dessert and watch the confusion Shakespeare created with two sets of identical twins separated at birth.

Shakespeare reminded me that summer is a great time to do things just for fun.
