Two sets of identical twins are separated at birth when they’re rescued from a shipwreck. And when they end up in the same shifty, transitory port-town of Ephesus fully grown, we join them on their bizarre journey of reconciliation. As they collide unknowingly with each other’s friends and family, it’s not long before this absurd tale of mistaken identity and far-fetched coincidence unfolds in chaotic hilarity.

Imara Savage takes on one of Shakespeare’s earliest comedies with style. Sharp banter and comical wordplay lure us into a contemporary world where characters are reinvented, individuality is fluid, and bigger themes lie just below the surface.

Over the course of this fast-paced comedy, truths are increasingly unstable, accidents more unfortunate and the boundary between what’s real and what isn’t becomes even more tenuous.
