‘Comedy, love … and a bit with a dog’. That was the famous line summing up Shakespeare’s Two Gentlemen of Verona in the film Shakespeare In Love. With familiar elements of Shakespeare comedies – star-crossed lovers, a girl disguised as a boy and misadventures in the woods – Two Gentlemen of Verona sends up the rules of courtship and notions of idealism in love and friendship.
Two Gentlemen of Verona is a Slip of the Tongue/RAD Company co-production and plays Raglan before shows in the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival. Slip of The Tongue established Hamilton’s outdoor Shakespeares thirty years ago, and have a reputation for fast-paced productions that are understandable by all. Raglan newcomers RAD Company bring their own exuberance and highly-honed sense of the ridiculous to this tale of love and loyalty. Bring a rug, bring a picnic, sit back and enjoy!
