The Comedy of Errors

Haid 166 Wimmer Circle, Belmont

The Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare’s earliest (and funniest!) efforts. The play, which relies heavily upon slapstick and farce, is also one of his shortest. Set in the Greek city of Ephesus, The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins who 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. This sidesplitting comedy marks the return of The Shakespeare Series to the Haid stage.
