Publisher's Summary

Chaos and confusion mount to a crescendo in a wild and fast-paced comedy of mistaken identity, one of Shakespeare's earliest plays.

Young Antipholus of Syracuse is searching the world for his identical twin brother, separated from him at birth. With him is his servant Dromio, who lost his twin brother at the same time. The pair arrive in Ephesus where, unbeknownst to them, their twins are living.

Antipholus of Syracuse is played by David Tennant, Antipholus of Ephesus by Brendan Coyle. Alan Cox and Jason O'Mara are the two Dromios, while Niamh and Sorcha Cusack play Adriana and Luciana.

    Story
    "Ill deeds is doubled with an evil word"

    “If she lives till doomsday, she'll burn a week longer than the whole world.”
    ― William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors, Act III.2

    Look. It isn't brilliant Shakespeare, but it is worth the price of admission for just the banter, puns, etc. There really isn't a major character that jumps out. Perhaps, that is due to the constraints of the premise, but anyway. It was 80 pages of drama and I rather enjoyed it. I'm just not sure how much of it will stick (Like Hamlet, Othello, etc) years from now. If you are looking for top level dialogue, but not worried about plot or uncovering the meaning of life or the essential elements of humanity, this book might just be the thing.

    Some of my favorite quotes:

    ― “I to the world am like a drop of water
    That in the ocean seeks another drop,
    Who, falling there to find his fellow forth,
    Unseen, inquisitive, confounds himself.” (Act I.2)

    ― "A wretched soul bruised with adversity,
    We bid be quiet when we hear it cry;
    But were we burdened with like weight of pain,
    As much, or more, we should ourselves complain." (Act II.1.)

    ― "Every why hath a wherefore. (Act II.2)

    ― “Since mine own doors refuse to entertain me,
    I'll knock elsewhere, to see if they'll disdain me” (Act III.1)

    ― “If she lives till doomsday, she'll burn a week longer than the whole world.” (Act III.2)

    Story
    "A must for any Shakespeare lover."

    Comedy of Errors gas long been my favourite
    Shakespeare (since I was four!). These readers definitely do Shakespeare justice! Their speech makes even the sometimes convoluted and more confusing scenes clear to the reader. Loved it on the first read, and I am sure I am sure it will not be the last.

    "Delightful"

    What a treat to listen to this production of The Comedy of Errors. The voices of David Tennant, Brendan Coyle and Alan Cox added a delightful element to this funny story.
