Two pairs of twins end up as two pairs of master and servant whose accidental meeting causes chaos in this classic madcap tale of mistaken identity.
Long before Disney’s The Parent Trap, there was The Comedy of Errors: Shakespeare’s early take on identical twins separated at birth and the mix-ups that occur when their paths cross later in life. In this case, a man is wrongly accused of missing dinner with his wife and dragged into an unfamiliar household while the real husband is locked out of his own home. Complicating matters further is that each man has a loyal, if at times dimwitted, servant who – you guessed it- is the long lost identical twin of the other servant. Confusion escalates in a series of scenes based on mistaken identity until finally the four men find themselves – and their estranged father – in the same place at the same time. Read the full review.
