The Comedy of Errors is a comic farce that tells the story of two sets of identical twins who were accidentally separated at birth. 25 years later, Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in the city of Ephesus, which happens to be the home of their long-lost twins: Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the two from Syracuse encounter the Ephesian friends and families of their twins, it sets off a series of wild mishaps — including mistaken identities, wrongful beatings, attempted seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, insanity, and even demonic possession. In addition to slapstick and mistaken identity, the play also features puns and word play, as you might expect from Shakespeare. For our production, the setting of “Ephesus” will be Chicago in the 1990s. The Comedy of Errors is William Shakespeare’s earliest comedy and his shortest play. Come join us for this crowd-pleasing comedy!
