Shakespeare's Globe

The Two Gentlemen of Verona [2016]

Written by: William Shakespeare
Directed by: Nick Bagnall

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?

This riotous 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.

Leah Brotherhead and Dharmesh Patel featured as part of the Adopt an Actor interview series for this production.
