Estranged twins + mistaken identity = Shakespeare’s farcical brilliance

Shipwrecked and separated 25 years earlier, two sets of long-lost twins miraculously find themselves in the same city on the same day. What could possibly go wrong? The Comedy of Errors is a hilarious romp of swapped identities, misguided love, mistaken imprisonment and chaotic mishaps, leading to an unbelievably crazy day for bumbling twins. At the heart of this tale of comedic misfortune is an old man, searching for his lost children, who has found himself in the fight of his life… to save his life. As far-fetched coincidences unfold, chaotic hilarity ensues and a man’s life could be saved, if only everything would go to plan. Directed by Janine Watson (Romeo and Juliet, Ensemble Theatre’s Unqualified), this is a beautiful story about reunion, wrapped up in an evening of entertainment and laughter. After a day of mistaken identity leading to unfair thrashings, wrongful arrests and false charges of infidelity, robbery, madness and even demonic possession, can the twins possibly reunite and live happily ever after?
