Blog posts about The Comedy of Errors:
A wretched soul, bruis'd with adversity,
We bid be quiet, when we hear it cry;
But, were we burden'd with like weight of pain,
As much or more we should ourselves complain.
This is the story of two sets of identical twins that 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.
