Twins are fun and sinister. At the African-American Shakespeare Company's production of The Comedy of Errors, director Raelle Myrick-Hodge takes the old story for all the laughs it's worth. Mistaken identities rule the day as two sets of identical twins are separated during a disaster early in their lives and are unknowingly reunited 25 years later. Servants, masters, doctors, patients, and even (we have heard of this nearly happening in real life OMG) spouses become confused, resulting in dirty jokes, random violence, and slapstick.
