The play tells the story of Egeon, a merchant of Syracuse, who is condemned to death in Ephesus for violating the ban against travel between the two rival cities. As he is led to his execution, he tells the Ephesian Duke, Solinus, that he has come to Syracuse in search of his wife and one of his twin sons, who were separated from him 25 years ago in a shipwreck. The Duke is so moved by this story that he grants Egeon a day to raise the thousand-mark ransom that would be necessary to save his life. Tickets are $8 for general admission and $6 for seniors, children under 10 and COHS students with an ASB card.
