What do police officers, three nuns, a politician, a demonic exorcist, a woman of the evening, and a lusty kitchen lunch-lady…..all have in common?

Answer: The Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare’s madcap farce of identical twins, mistaken identity, and classic confusion, boxed up in a teaching moment on the importance of understanding in a world ruled by the lure of money and inflexible laws.
