thou are condemned to death due to violating the ban against the travel of two rival cities thou are to be executed
wait I have been searching for my wife and one of my twin sons
I'm searching for my other half of my family with egeus
meanwhile Egeus got granted one day to raise 1 thousand ransom for his life
I am Antipholus of Syracuse and I am going to Ephesus
Oh!! there thou are Antipholus of Ephesus come here right now for dinner
Egeus is being arrested for violating the ban against the travel of two rival cities but he gets out of it by telling the ephisean duke that he came to Syracuse and has been searching for his wife and one of his twin children that were separated 25 years ago
I demand for him to be held in a cellar room
Run! twin slave this place is enchanted
I' am not paying for this gold chain
then thou to be arrested for dept
The other twin who grew up with egeon is also travelling the world looking for the other half of the family too. (the twins we learn are identical and have a twin slave named Dromio). The Duke was so moved by the story that Egeus told that he got granted a whole day to reach the thousand mark ransom that would pay for his life.
Please can thou get my husband from the abbey and bring him to me.
I demand her to be locked up
Meanwhile, unknown to Egeon, his son Antipholus of Syracuse (and Antipholus' slave Dromio) is also visiting Ephesus--where Antipholus' missing twin, known as Antipholus of Ephesus, is a prosperous citizen of the city. Adriana, Antipholus of Ephesus' wife, mistakes Antipholus of Syracuse for her husband and drags him home for dinner, leaving Dromio of Syracuse to stand guard at the door and admit no one. Shortly thereafter, Antipholus of Ephesus (with his slave Dromio of Ephesus) returns home and is refused entry to his own house. Meanwhile, Antipholus of Syracuse has fallen in love with Luciana, Adriana's sister
the confusion increases when a gold chain ordered by Antipholus of Ephesus is given to Antipholus of Syracuse and Antipholus of Ephesus didn't pay for the gold chain because he didn't get it. Antipholus of Ephesus's wife is confused and asks for him to be bound and held in a cellar room. meanwhile Antipholus of Syracuse and his slave decide to fell the city but gets interrupted by Adriana and the dept officer. they seek refuge behind a abbey
Adriana now begs the Duke to intervene and remove her "husband" from the abbey into her custody. Her real husband, meanwhile, has broken loose and now comes to the Duke and levels charges against his wife
The situation is finally resolved by the Abbess, Emilia, who brings out the set of twins and reveals herself to be Egeon's long-lost wife. Antipholus of Ephesus reconciles with Adriana; Egeon is pardoned by the Duke and reunited with his spouse; Antipholus of Syracuse resumes his romantic pursuit of Luciana, and all ends happily with the two Dromios embracing.
