'If everyone knows us and we know none, 'Tis time, I think, to trudge, pack and be gone.'

In Shakespeare’s uproarious comedy of mistaken identity, mayhem, and misunderstandings, two twin brothers and their twin servants are separated from each other and embark on a riotous search to find their other halves.

This 2014 production from the Globe stage features Hattie Ladbury as Adriana.

Synopsis

Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both called Dromio), keep them in ignorance of each other and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos.

One Antipholus is astonished by his foreign hospitality; the other enraged by the hostility of his home town. The Dromios, caught between the two, are soundly beaten for obeying all the wrong orders.
