The Comedy of Errors
William Shakespeare, Paul Edmondson, Randall Martin, Randall Martin
‘After God, Shakespeare has created most’ Alexandre Dumas
Two sets of identical twins, separated at sea as babies, find themselves in the same city for the first time as adults. Soon, their friends mistake the twins for one another and bewilderment abounds. Joyful, mystical and brilliantly farcical, Shakespeare’s shortest play is an early romantic comedy of confusion and ultimate reunion.
