The Comedy of Errors
By William Shakespeare
Translation by Christina Anderson
Shakespeare’s archetypal slapstick comedy, now with updated jokes and wordplay.
One of Shakespeare’s earliest plays, The Comedy of Errors is a farcical tale of separated twins and mistaken identities. This slapstick play is a staple of the genre, including madcap bawdiness, love at first sight, reunions, and happily-ever-afters. Christina Anderson’s translation dives deep into the joy of the original text, reinterpreting the metaphor, antiquated slang, and double and triple entendre for a contemporary audience.
