The Comedy of Errors Translation Table of Contents

Two identical twins bearing the same name, Antipholus--and their servants, also identical twins sharing the name Dromio--are separated. Naturally, confusion ensues when Antipholus and Dromio of Ephesus make landfall in Syracuse, a city which the other Antipholus and Dromio call home. As gold is exchanged and poor Adriana can’t tell which Antipholus twin is her husband, the two Dromios meet. Comic hijinks ensue in Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors until the twins are reunited with their father, and a nun who makes a shocking revelation that will change their family forever. The Shakescleare modern English translation of the play makes it easy to understand The Comedy of Errors’ tricky plot twists and important quotes, like “they say every why hath a wherefore.”
