The Comedy of Errors is Shakespeare’s shortest play and one of his wittiest. The humor of this farcical comedy stems mainly from a double-double mistaken identity combined with slapstick humor and sparkling word play. Comedy tells the tale of two sets of identical twins—two servants and two masters—accidentally separated at birth. When all four end up in the same city at the same time, confusion and complication ensues. Undeserved whippings, love triangles, false arrests, and wrongful accusations of everything from lunacy and deception to betrayal and thievery follow the twin sets everywhere. Come see Summer Shakespeare’s unique twist in Comedy-O-Errors: A Crazy, Kooky, Madcap Farce!
