The Comedy of Errors (version 3)

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.4 stars; 13 reviews)

Written sometime between 1592 and 1594, Comedy of Errors is certainly the exact recipe for a Shakespearean Comedy. Two sets of identical twin boys are born on the same day but separated when a freak tempest destroys their boat. Fast forward many years and by some twist of fate, the sets of twins are set to be reunited! But not before some false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, demonic possession, angry wives, nuns, merchants, lectures and genuine mistaken identities. (Summary by Charlotte Duckett)

This play was recorded in two weeks as part of the Librivox 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's Death celebrations
