Over the next five years, Shakespeare Dallas and AT&T Performing Arts Center will present staged readings of every single one of Williams Shakespeare's works. The ninth in the series is The Comedy of Errors, which 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 lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.
