The Two Gentlemen of Verona

Filmed Live in HD at Depot Square Park

Our 2013 production, the sixth annual Actors Circle Theatre Shakespeare in the Park, was The Two Gentlemen of Verona. The Two Gentlemen of Verona is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1589 and 1592. It is considered by some to be Shakespeare's first play, and is often seen as showing his first tentative steps in laying out some of the themes and motifs with which he would later deal in more detail; for example, it is the first of his plays in which a heroine dresses as a boy. The play deals with the themes of friendship and infidelity, the conflict between friendship and love, and the foolish behavior of people in love. The highlight of the play is considered by some to be Launce, the clownish servant of Proteus, and his dog Crab, to whom "the most scene-stealing non-speaking role in the canon" has been attributed.  This year's production was met with rave reviews and an incredibly enthusiastic audience.
