A Told by an Idiot and Royal Shakespeare Company production

A story of two sets of identical twins, that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio of Syracuse arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their twin brothers - Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and family of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on hilarious misunderstandings ensues.

Performed at the Courtyard Theatre, Stratford in 2010 and then transferred to the Armory Theatre in New York in 2011.
