"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 humor coming from slapstick, mistaken identity, puns and word play.

Shakespeare’s "The Comedy of Errors" tells the farcical misadventures of two sets of identical twins. Egeon, a Syracusan merchant, had twin sons both named Antipholus. At their birth, he bought another pair of newborn twins, both named Dromio, as their servants. In a shipwreck, Egeon lost his wife, one of his sons, and one of the Dromios. Antipholus of Syracuse, and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, later come to Ephesus, where—unknown to them—their lost twins reside. The new visitors are confused when local residents seem to know them. A series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to farcical and fantastic misunderstandings. When the four twins come together, all is finally resolved. And in one final twist, their long-separated parents reunite as well.

It will now be available to stream on-demand for free from Friday, July 16 to Sunday, August 8 through Coronado Playhouse.
