The comedy of errors is a comedy written by William Shakespeare Shakespeare instead of a Comedy of Errors-The Dromiossingle set of identical twins Shakespeare added another set to serve as servants to the lost twins thus complicating the plot with more mistaken identities The characters are all dead serious about their confusion This play is about the twin Dromios and the twin Antipholus This play is about their mistaken identities in the play and how much trouble they go through only finding out it wasnt the right person They undergo a test of identity by having two identities only they discover they really have none at all Magill 1039The Dromios were separated from each other in infancy each with a similary separated master In the play they share with their masters the confusions and errors that mistaked identities lead to All characters have been drawn into a madly developed chase through the streets of Ephesus until the denouement when the twins finally meet The confusions of identity with the two Dromios a sense especially of loss or transformation and for Antipholus of Ephesus a need defiantly to assert his identity in a world that seems to go mad thus lead to a breakdown of the social order through the frustration of normal relationships The normal relationship of master and servant is broken as each Antipholus meets the others Dromio and then beats his own servant for failin to carry out orders given to someone else Bender 83The Dromios with their incessant drubbings are often the center of interest in performance and rightly so The serious force of the presentation of the Antipholus twins is paralled by a more comic treatment of their servant Dromio of Ephesus suffers like an ass from the blows of his master and finding that another has assumed his officae and identity as servant in Adrianas household Dromio applies the term ass in relation to the beatings he is made to
