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.
— Antipholus of Syracuse, Act I Sc 2
Shakespeare's hilarious comedy of mistaken identity reunites two sets of long-lost twin brothers in the Mediterranean city of Ephesus - but not before they and the townsfolk have been plunged into chaos and confusion.
In the market square, where merchants trade, mountebanks cheat and courtesans flatter, a series of bizarre encounters lands one brother in love and the other in gaol - until a surprising revelation unravels the tangled chain of events and the family is finally reunited.
With nightclub songs composed especially for this production by Richard Morris and performed live, this was a fast-paced and atmospheric production.
Marry, he must have a long spoon that must eat with the devil.
— Dromio of Syracuse, Act IV Sc 3
