Comedy of Errors - William Shakespeare Twin brothers with their twin slaves get separated as infants. Years later, they end up in in the same city at the same time. Each twin has the same name as their counterpart and apparently wear the same clothes. Hijinks ensue. The premise is completely forced so you just have to accept that going in. As long as you don’t think about it too much, it’s funny. Funny in the way that watching little kids fall down is funny. It’s slapstick, Tudor-style.
