"Often under-rated as a mechanical farce, The Comedy of Errors, hilarious in its exploitation of mistaken identity, masterly in construction, and brilliant in linguistic invention, is the first of Shakespeare’s romantic comedies, deeply moving in the reunions and reconciliations of its conclusion. This, the first major edition since 1988, bases itself directly on the 1623 Folio text and provides explanatory notes." The Introduction, appreciative of the play’s theatrical success over the centuries, argues that it was specifically written for and performed at the Gray’s Inn Christmas revels on 28 December 1594, making it among the first plays composed by Shakespeare for his new company, the Lord Chamberlain’s Men.
