It is his shortest and one of his most farcical, with a major part of the humour coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and wordplay. The Comedy of Errors (along with The Tempest) is one of only two of Shakespeare's plays to observe the classical unities. It has been adapted for opera, stage, screen and musical theatre.

The story of a pair of identical twins both named Dromio, the play becomes a laughing riot of confusion as the twins both serve men named Antipholus, who are also twin brothers with the same name. Complete with witty puns and word play, The Comedy of Errors is a favorite among the playwright's comedies for film, opera and other theatrical adaptations. The play is one of only two of Shakespeare's plays (along with The Tempest) that adheres to Aristotle's theory of classical unities which states that plays, in their neoclassical form, follow three rules: (1) Unity of Action: One main plot, no subplots; (2) Unity of Place: Having one geographical location (in this case, Ephesus) and (3) Unity of Time: Taking place over no more than 24 hours."@en
