Shakespeare Unbard Episode 09: The comedy that should be taken more seriously than it is: it's The Comedy of Errors

The Comedy of Errors may be an early comedy, but it is a sophisticated one and if you didn't have a timeline to look at, you might guess it was written by a writer at the top of his game.  In Episode 9 of Shakespeare Unbard, Joel Fishbane discusses this magnificent comedy, along with a one minute synopsis and a review of the 1990 production by the Stratford Festival of Canada.
