Valentine 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.Performers Mark Arends (Proteus), Elliot Barnes-Worrell (Outlaw), Martin Bassindale (Speed), Pearl Chanda (Julia), Nicholas Gerard-Martin (Thurio), Robert Gilbert (Outlaw), Jonny Glynn (The Duke of Milan), Molly Gromadzki (Host/Singer), Youssef Kerkour (Sir Eglamour), Sarah MacRae (Silvia), Michael Marcus (Valentine), Roger Morlidge (Launce), Keith Osborn (Antonio), Leigh Quinn (Lucetta), Simon Yadoo (Panthion/Outlaw).
