A Comedy of Errors

In my quest to get through Shakespeare, I finished his shortest play, A Comedy of Errors. This was his first play that we know of. It does take long to get through and has a lot of slapstick comedy in it.
There isn’t much to get out off this play. There aren’t any great quotes. The characters are rather forgettable, but it is fun. Being able to say that Shakespeare’s plays are fun isn’t always an option, especially his comedies, strangely enough. There is not great issues involved with this play, either. Two sets of twins are seperated at birth. They end up in seperate cities, but end up with the same name. One set arrives in the town where the other set have lived for years. Comedy ensues.
That’s about it. I liked this one, but there isn’t too much to say beyond that, except there was a lot of drinking in bars.

Darkly,
