Notes & Reviews:
Valentine and Proteus are best friends until they fall in love with the same girl. Having traveled to Milan in search of adventure, they both fall for the Duke's daughter Silvia. But Proteus is already sworn to his sweetheart Julia at home in Verona, and the Duke thinks Valentine is not good enough for his Silvia. With friendship forgotten, the rivals' affections quickly get out of hand as the four young lovers find themselves on a wild chase through the woods, confused by mistaken identity and threatened by fierce outlaws before they find a path to reconciliation. This production of The Two Gentlemen of Verona marked Simon Godwin's RSC debut as director of Shakespeare's romantic comedy, and the first full-length production of the play by the RSC in 45 years. "An absolute treat... " (What's On Stage) "Director Simon Godwin eagerly explores the light and dark sides of romance in a striking RSC debut ... A delightful evening." (The Guardian)Notes & Reviews:
