The play opens with the trial of a poor merchant from Syracuse, whose family was separated years ago by shipwreck. This merchant, Egeon, had undertaken a quest to search for his surviving twin son, Antipholus, who had two years earlier set off with his bondsman Dromio (also a twin) to search for their respective missing brothers. Egeon is unsuccessful in his search, and on his journey homeward trespasses into Ephesus, a city-state in conflict with Syracuse. Unable to pay the necessary ransom, Egeon is condemned to death by the laws of Ephesus.

That same night, his son Antipholus arrives in Ephesus with Dromio, unaware that Egeon has recently landed, and that his long-lost twin lives in the city as well. The local twin, Antipholus of Ephesus, also has a bondsman named Dromio (the Syracusans having adopted their lost brothers’ names).

A roller coaster of errors begins as the visiting Antipholus is thrust unwittingly into his brother’s domestic life, which involves an alienated wife, Adriana, and an enchanting sister-in-law, Luciana. Sharing names and appearances, the four twins — and eventually the members of their community — are all tied up in an absurd knot of confusion that builds to a frenzied climax. (
