Two Gentlemen of Verona
"Love and a bit with a dog"

20th April to 16th May 2004
Greenwich Playhouse

Valentine is in love with Proteus - but Proteus' father would rather see him married to the rich and spoiled Julia. Valentine leaves to seek his fortune in Milan, under the tutelage of the Duke. Here he meets Silvia. They have a lot in common - and he finds her love of sword fighting, tilts, tournaments and, most importantly, her sensible shoes, quite endearing.

Leaving Julia behind, Proteus follows Valentine to Milan - Julia follows, dressed as a boy, and the fun begins. With a cast of clowns, comedy maids, and a troop of gay bandits, Two Gentlemen of Verona is an hysterical new take on this little performed classic.

Ecstatically received by audiences and critics alike, Two Gentlemen of Verona played to packed houses.
