The Comedy of Errors

Things sure are strange in the city of Ephesus.

It seems at times like the city is filled with sorcerers, witches, and demons as two sets of identical twins find themselves in the city causing numerous mis-identifications, accusations, much confusion.

Will Antipholus and Dromio from Syracuse and Antipholus and Dromio from Ephesus ever sort things out?
