The Two Gentlemen of Verona - Shakespeare's Bookends archiveValentine and Proteus are best friends until they fall in love with the same girl. Having travelled to Milan in search of adventure, they both fall for the Duke's daughter Silvia. But Proteus is already sworn to his sweetheart Julia at home in Verona, and the Duke thinks Valentine is not good enough for his Silvia. With friendship forgotten, the rivals' affections quickly get out of hand as the four young lovers find themselves on a wild chase through the woods, confused by mistaken identity and threatened by fierce outlaws before they find a path to reconciliation. Before the comedies there was The Two Gentlemen of Verona. After the tragedies there was The Two Noble Kinsmen. Perfect Shadow Mingled Yarn presents the two plays that bookend Shakespeare's career as a playwright. Together, two fairytales unfold, two different and difficult examinations of love: one light, one dark, one young, one old, one comic, one tragic. Performing these plays in rep, Perfect Shadow Mingled Yarn will explore how much love changes across Shakespeare's career, and how much it stays the same.
