The Bard loved a mix-up. After being separated as babies, two sets of identical twins with identical names, find themselves in the same place at the same time.

This week, Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors is at the ADC Theatre, Cambridge by students who have returned from taking the play on a stage tour to America.

The Bard loved a mix-up. After being separated as babies, two sets of identical twins with identical names, find themselves in the same place at the same time.

After years of searching the world for their other halves, one half of each pair of twins arrives in the home town of the other half causing chaos and confusion, inevitably leading to mistaken identities.

This version is lightly reimagined as a birthday celebration and promises disco-bopping, candle-blowing and fancy dress fun.
