Please note: this production has now closed.

'Please you, I’ll tell you as we pass along,
That you will wonder what hath fortuned.'

Synopsis


Valentine loves Silvia and Proteus loves Julia – but Proteus is fickle and falls for Silvia too. When Valentine plots an elopement, Proteus betrays him and Valentine is banished and joins some outlaws in the forest. What are the chances that he’ll be pursued by Silvia, and Silvia by Proteus, and Proteus by Julia, and that all will be waited upon – after a fashion – by their servants Speed and Launce and even Launce’s dog, Crab?

Background


This riotous new touring production is led by a joyful ensemble of players who will delight with songs, romance and chaos, and hurl Shakespeare’s anarchic comedy into the 21st century.

Nick Bagnall’s previous productions at Shakespeare’s Globe include Henry VI: Parts I, II and III (2013), The Last Days of Troy (2014), Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (2014) and The Odyssey: Missing, Presumed Dead (2015).
