What is The Comedy of Errors about?

These are strange times. Confusion and uncertainty everywhere.

The play begins with a father who winds up in the wrong country at the wrong time just as a government is making hasty proclamations regarding travel. Meanwhile, a lonely son is searching for his brother and in turn loses himself. Across town a wife begins to realise her husband isn’t the man she thought he was, but rather likes it. Will anything ever be the same again?
