The Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare’s earlier works, features some themes which will endure throughout his career.  While incorporating great comedic timing, the plot involves a shipwreck, two sets of twins, and a family fractured and reunited, all while one of the main characters spends what promises to be his last day on earth under a death threat. And everyone ends up happy!   It’s the 16th century equivalent of a beach read—so come along for a romp in Ephesus as we work our way through this entertaining play.
