Antipholus of Syracuse is accosted by Adriana, his identical twin’s wife, who has mistaken him for her husband, Antipholus of Ephesus, and misinterprets his apathy toward her as that of a straying lover. Having never laid eyes on her in his life, he’s simply treating her as the stranger she is, and is completely baffled by the accusations hurled at him.  Her self-righteous declaration of fidelity elicits a reaction of astonished amusement from him (the “Phew” cracks me up).  I love Michael Kitchen’s bemused expressions as his character tries to make sense of the odd situation in which he finds himself.
