WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare's earliest plays, is also his shortest and one of his most farcical -- a major part of the humor derived from slapstick, puns and wordplay. The story of two sets of identical twins accidentally separated at birth involves a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities leading to wrongful attacks, a near-seduction, an arrest and accusations of infidelity, theft, madness and demonic possession. Shakespeare sets all this action in one day and features a recurring theme across his work: blending tragic situations with comedic resolutions and introducing slapstick to wide appeal.
