From The Rome Savoyards:

One of William Shakespeare’s early play, written presumably between 1589 and 1594, The Comedy of Errors is his shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humour coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word play.  Adapted for opera, stage, screen and musical theatre, it tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth, leading to a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities, wrongful beatings, a near-seduction and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness and demonic possession.

A wonderful classic of the stage, providing some delightful entertainment!

Cast (in order of appearance):
Bruce McGuire, Lydia O’Kane, Lee Archer, Rick Breco, Rishad Noorani, Colin Clay, Ulan Iskakov, Gina Ferrain, Fabiana De Rose, Edwin Tavarez-Valentin, Michael Gilmartin, Carolyn Gouger, Gabrielle Chiararo, Shelagh Stuchbery and with Carla Wiegers
