Two sets of twins, the Dromios and the Antipholuses of Syracuse and Ephesus respectively, create havoc regarding a necklace, a sum of money and who is whose husband. Director Ron West breaks with tradition by casting two actors in each role instead of having one actor play both Dromios and Antipholuses, and it’s very effective in clarifying the action.
West’s ensemble staging gets pretty wild towards the end of this piece that comes in at 90 minutes with no intermission.
