Event: Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors

Student Assignment: Zack O.

Write a news story about the San Francisco's Shakespeare Festival's upcoming free performances. Highlight the two performances set to happen this weekend in the Presidio.

Use the Shakespeare Festival's website to collect information for your story.

You should also read the San Francisco Chronicle's review of the play. If you use any information from the story, remember to cite the information and link to the story.

Because this is a preview to a play, include the basic plot to this play. You should also consider whether this is play showing Shakespeare in the traditional sense or not.

Work in the following quotation from the Festival's website: "Only a Scrooge could fail to enjoy this light-hearted entertainment, which kept multi-generational family groups happily attentive for several hours," wrote Sue Steinberg, in the Pleasanton Independent.

Remember to answer the five 5 W's of a good news story.
