The Comedy of Errors
    By William Shakespeare

    19:45, Wed 6th – Sat 9th February 2013 at Cambridge Arts Theatre
    Lent Week 3

    The Comedy of Errors tells 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 occur.
