One of Shakespeare’s great comedies, The Comedy of Errors is full of mistaken identity and miscommunication. The story follows two sets of twins, Antipholus of Ephesus and Antipholus of Syracuse, and Dromio of Ephesus and Dromio of Syracuse. Dromio of Ephesus is the slave of Antipholus of Ephesus, and Dromio of Syracuse is the slave of Antipholus of Syracuse. Antipholus of Ephesus is unaware that he has a twin brother, and Dromio of Ephesus is unaware that he also has a twin brother. Farcical mix-ups occur when the twins all meet in Ephesus. Their journey and eventual reunion explore themes of reality, time, coincidence, and love.
