A Detailed Biography Also Included at the Start.<br /><br />The Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare's early plays. It is his shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humour coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word play. The Comedy of Errors (along with The Tempest) is one of only two of Shakespeare's plays to observe the classical unities.

Why is Mr. Darcy so keen to stand up for every dance? His animated performance is the highlight of the Meryton assembly. Everybody is delighted with him except for Elizabeth, who thinks him a worthless fribble and a bad influence on her younger sisters, and Miss Bingley, who does not like to see him dance and form friendships with others. Will their concurrence on this subject turn Lizzy and Miss Bingley into the best of friends? Will Mr. Darcy’s friendship exercise a good influence over Kitty and Lydia? Will theirs bring out the best in him? And will he and Elizabeth ever find any common ground, or are they destined to disagree over every little thing?<br /><br /><br />
