Two Gentlemen of Verona by William Shakespeare.
Director: Andrew Hilton. Designer: Harriet de Winton.
Exeter Northcott Theatre. 4th – 8th June, 2013.
Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory, Bristol’s nationally renowned company makes its second visit to the Northcott Theatre after its much celebrated production of The Comedy of Errors in 2011 with this darkly comic early romance in which friendship and love, and loyalty and betrayal are the real players.
Two lifelong friends – the two young gentlemen of the title – are parted first by circumstance, and then by rivalry in love.
Can their loyalty to each other survive the test, or will new loyalties drive out the old? How deep into perfidy can one be driven by sexual obsession?
And what do even the most adored of women count for in a profoundly masculine world?
Shakespeare’s vision is both comic and shocking – and extraordinarily modern.
‘We are delighted to welcome Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory back to the Exeter Northcott Theatre, our audiences will be thrilled to have another chance to enjoy what we know will be an excellent and accessible production.’
