Synopsis

The play is about twins, both named Antipholus, who have twin servants, both named Dromio. After a shipwreck, the twins are separated, with one Antipholus and Dromio reaching Ephesus and the other pair returning to Syracuse. Twenty years later they all arrive in the same city, with hilarious confusion. Mr. Pickett suggests that the production should have the flavor of a Marx Brothers movie, full of energy, brisk tempo and zany business. "It should be electric but never silly or artsy," he advises. With this approach, Pickett mounted acclaimed productions for the University of Houston and the Houston Shakespeare Festival.

Customer Reviews

"An excellent cutting to give high school students of all levels the experience of Shakespeare. It has the period language mixed well with less period language and maintains the genuine feel of Shakespeare."
Review by Steve Glendenning, Jefferson High School, Shenandoah Junction, W.V.
