The COMEDY of Errors?

And so we begin… 36 plays in 36 months…

And The Comedy of Errors begins with Egeon, pleading to the Duke of Ephesus:

Proceed, Solinus, to procure my fall
And by the doom of death end woes and all.

— I.i.1-2

He’s not pleading for his life, but for his death, a death to “end woes and all.”

THIS is a comedy?
