Take one set of identical twins separated since birth, add a second set as their servants, and throw them all into the same town for a single day. Confusion abounds and hilarity ensues as everyone in the town tries to figure out why these people are behaving so strangely today. (“Although ‘Comedy’ is Shakespeare’s shortest play, we did a little bit of trimming here and there, to take the intermission out, to make it a one-act 90-minute event.”)Olney Theatre Center
