Life is full of misunderstandings. You might give someone the false impression that they’re an interesting person, or you misinterpret what actually constitutes theft. Perhaps it’s something as simple as asking your wife to pick up bread from the store, but she comes back with 17 Andalusian horses she bought using the deed to the house. It’s a breakdown in communication, WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE.
Of course, these misunderstandings can lead to gossip, secrets, distrust, anger, aggression, war, even death. But they can also lead to Comedy! Here at Nixon vs Kennedy, we aim to translate the misunderstandings that cause personal and global tragedies into non-stop laughing. Travesties and terrors? More like Comedy of Errors!
