Comedy of Errors at Neptune Theatre – Review by Teen Blogger Kathleen

A comedy. Of Errors. The title speaks for itself. Or perhaps not. I walked into this play not knowing the plot at all—because although this is arguably one of Shakespeare’s more famous plays, it rarely gets much attention. On the assumption that most of you are teens (and I apologize to my treasured adult readers; I’ll hope you’re not offended) there’s a strong chance you’re not familiar with the plot, either.

There is much confusion, and it almost seems that there must be two Dromeos and two Antipholouses, as both of them are completely confused as to what is going on, and are continuously baffled by things the other says. At the end of the play, there is a surprise twist, which ultimately explains the confusion and helps you make sense of the whole show. Still with me?
