About this show

A Renaissance spin on a Roman story by Plautus, The Comedy of Errors is a short and boisterous comedy about 'Errors and Confusions'. A trade war between Syracuse and Ephesus is the background to the chaotic story of estranged twin brothers -- both called Antipholus -- and estranged twin servants who are both called Dromio. Mixing extremes of farce and romance, the increasingly hectic action is a frenzy of storms, shipwrecks, losses at sea, conjugal conflicts, and creditors chasing debts, before the final restoration of sanity. Chris Luscombe directs.
