Dates

12 March - 16 March 2013

BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

This production takes one of Shakespeare’s greatest  comedies, Two Gentlemen of Verona, and transforms it into a two-man Zimbabwean riot of love, friendship and betrayal.

Two great friends, Valentine and Proteus, vie for the love of the same woman. When Valentine is banished, their friendship is threatened and only through disguise, deception and intrigue are they reconciled.

In a broad, loud, triumphantly energetic ‘township’ style the two actors slip into all of the play’s fifteen characters, from amorous suitors to sullen daughters, depressed servants and even a dog!

One of Shakespeare’s most well-loved plays resonates with the Zimbabwean Experience of exile, powerful rulers and personal allegiances in this adaptation that will make you laugh and cry all at once.
