A merchant arrives in town with a sorry tale. Years ago he was shipwrecked and survived by clinging to the mast with one of his daughters and a slave.
His wife was rescued together with their other daughter and their slave but the two parties became separated and haven't seen each other since.
His daughter, now grown up, sets off with her slave to find her sister and the merchant has followed her to this town. Both the sisters and their slaves are twins and, now that they are all in the same town, it isn't long before confusion reigns supreme.
Written entirely in verse and using rhymes good, bad and appalling, this sparkling adaptation of Shakespeare's A Comedy of Errors reverses the genders of the main characters.
With a running time of around twenty minutes it is perfect for a young cast of six girls and two boys.
