Welcome to the bustling village of Ephesus, a little fishing community of a time gone by where almost anything can happen. Taking place over the course of a day, the action is non-stop….and a lot can happen in a day!

Join us on a journey of discovery as Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio arrive in Ephesus, where, unbeknownst to them their identical twin brothers have lived for years. The merchant Aegeon relays a tragic story of a shipwreck and a family torn asunder, who despite years of searching are yet to be reunited. Could the events in Ephesus on this extraordinary day, lead to a resolution?

AND of course with two sets of twins around, things can get a little confusing! A series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities will lead to wrongful beatings, a seduction, an arrest, theft, madness, and maybe even demonic possession. Joyful, mystical and brilliantly farcical, Shakespeare’s shortest play is an early romantic comedy of confusion and ultimate reunion.

With a colourful array of characters, this riot of farce and slapstick is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.
