The Two Gentlemen of Verona 2017
14 - 29 JULY 2017
Summer 2017 continued with our first return to the Two Gentlemen of Verona since 2009. Director Charlotte Conquest and Neil Irish gave Verona and Milan, a 1930s setting, complete with a railway station and nightclub.
Stars of the show of course were our 3 wonderful dogs, Buddy, Tiba and Jen, who played the unruly Crab. The cast never knew what might happen from one night to the next! Original songs for nightclub starlet Silvia were written by Matt Eaton.
“…an evening of pure theatrical pleasure.” British Theatre Guide
"Two Gents was just an absolute delight last night. Stylish Shakespeare as the sun goes down; can’t really fault it"
"They just get better and better... tangible Shakespeare for everyone"
"This was INSPIRED. COMPLETELY and utterly WONDERFUL. The entire Two Gents was magnificent."
