Shakespeare’s Globe return to Exeter Northcott Theatre
Two Gentlemen of Verona
Thu 8 – Sun 11 September 2016
Following the great success of 2015’s Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s Globe returns to Exeter Northcott Theatre, this time with its acclaimed Two Gentlemen of Verona.
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 new 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.
