There are four main characters , the identical twin brothers---Antipholus of Ephesus and Atipholus of Syracuse and the sisters---Adrianna and Luciana.  One could also include the identical twin servants, Dromo of Ephesus and Dromo of Syracuse.

The play is a farce with double mistaken identity.  Antipholus of Ephesus is married to Adrianna.  Brother is mistaken for brother and the servants and their masters also get mixed up.
