Before The Parent Trap, there was The Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare’s outrageously witty comedy that doubles all of the stakes and drama. The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare’s earliest works and is centred around a story of misplaced identities that brims with slapstick gimmicks, as a set of long-lost siblings come face to face in a chaotic reunion.

About The Comedy of Errors
Seeing isn’t always believing…
Two sets of twins are separated at birth during a shipwreck and one ends up with the other, but who could predict that they would be given the same names and live in rival cities? Set within the ancient Greek city of Ephesus, The Comedy of Errors focuses on Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio of Syracuse on their trip to Ephesus, in search of the long-lost brothers.
When the four brothers inadvertently cross paths after twenty years apart, what sets in motion is a series of bizarre and thrilling incidents based on mixed-up identities, as this play hurtles towards an epic finale.
