Ships in 3-5 business days
The play derives the major part of its humour from mistaken identity and slapstick. Word play and pun happen to be equally powerful in this play.
It is generally believed that “The Comedy of Errors” and “The Tempest” are only two plays, written by William Shakespeare, which maintain the classical unities.
“The Comedy of Errors” has been translated into various languages and it has also been enacted by different drama groups in different parts of the world. Various films in different languages have been produced on the story of the play.
There are two pairs of identical twins in the play. They are, unfortunately and comically, separated right after their birth.
