The Comedy of Errors
by William Shakespeare

Stage Too!, The Crafton-Preyer Theatre

The Comedy of Errors is a classic Shakespearean comedy of mistaken identity. It tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers, Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession. The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays and is itself an adaptation of a classical comedy by the Roman playwright Plautus. It demonstrates his uncanny ability to adapt a story, to create witty banter, and to entertain an audience with comic hijinks.
