We'll leave a proof, by that which we will do, Wives may be merry, and yet honest too' Two sets of identical twins - Dromio and Antipholus of Syracuse, and their brothers Dromio and Antipholus of Ephesus - having been separated at sea as children, find themselves in the same city for the first time as adults.

By William Shakespeare. By William Shakespeare.

The early critical history of the play was one in which the fact of its being an imitation of a Roman original was held against it. In the Romantic era of the early nineteenth century, Shakespeare was prized as the great original. The idea of him as an imitator was displeasing.

Shakespeare’s Globe’s Touring Ensemble present a trio of plays exploring the themes of refuge and displacement, performed as a touring production would have been staged in the 17th century, with a stripped back set and a small, versatile troupe of actors. Taking on multiple roles across all three plays, our talented international cast will unravel these timeless tales of those who have crossed seas and lost their families, are seeking new homes, and finding out what belonging truly means to them.

The Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare's early plays. It is his shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humour coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word play. The Comedy of Errors is, along with The Tempest, one of only two Shakespearean plays to observe the Aristotelian principle of unity of time-that is, that the events of a play should occur over 24 hours.

Hilarious fun, this early comedy is filled with the merry violence of slapstick and farce. When two sets of twins, separated and apparently lost to each other, all end up in the rowdy, rollicking city of Ephesus, the stage is set for mix-ups, mayhem, and mistaken identity--plus the timeless puns, jokes, gags, and suspense that makes this play a wonderful theatrical frolic and a brilliant tour de force of language and laughter.
Comments to eBook Comedy of Errors, The (Penguin) (Shakespeare, Penguin)
Light out of Fildon
As someone who is reading Shakespeare for the second time at the age of 40 and who considers himself a careful reader, I am always surprised to find the Oxford editors bring new ways of looking at the plays. In this introduction, Whitworth does a commendable job of explaining the importance of The Comedy of Errors which is usually dismissed as light weight farce, by explaining the history of critiism of the play and it social relevance.
Presented as a Christmas entertainment for the queen, The Comedy cleverly combines plots from two Plautus plays as well as introducing plot elements of his own.
I-- a mere mortal-- have no ability to criticize Shakespeares truly immortal genious. As the best writer ever, all I can do is enjoy the work. The scholarly intro allows you to heighten the pleasure seeing thing that might not be seen at surface level.
An additional benefit of the Oxford Shakespeare is that it is annotated with just enough notes-- on the same page as the text.
If you read Shakespeare for enjoyment or for a class, Oxford is the best.

Includes a wonderful introduction to reading Shakespeare, e.g., word order, apostrophes, and verse/prose. Plus detailed guidance specific to Comedy of Errors, e.g., stage direction, motifs & themes, and map/history. The size, font, format/page layout, print and paper quality make this book a true joy to read, along with the fantanstic line by line annotations and comments.
Painbrand
This book is golden! The cut of the play gives the feel of the entire work and all of the suggestions on staging and props are right on for a middle-high school production of the play. I can't wait to do another play from the series next year.
Yozshujinn
This edition benefits from the editor's extensive knowledge of the Shakespeare canon, especially in the 50 pages of the technical introduction, in the footnotes to the text, and in the appendices that deal with performance history. Highly recommended.
Wild Python
Excellent!
Gavirus
This is a well-illustrated book which captures the Shakespeare's humor. I enjoyed reading it with my kids, in preparation for taking them to see the play. But the book is extremely abridged, so if you don't know the whole store, there are parts of it don't make sense.
Early Waffle
One of Shakespeare's funniest plays made accessable by a fantastic cast! Great for a long commute.
A good shakespeare, but not his best. Enjoyable.
