The Connaught Cinema presents Royal Shakespeare Company’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona broadcast live from Stratford-Upon-Avon at 7.00 pm tomorrow (Wednesday September 3rd).
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.
Simon Godwin makes his Royal Shakespeare Company debut to direct Shakespeare’s exuberant romantic comedy. He is Associate Director of the Royal Court and his production of Strange Interlude recently played to critical acclaim at the National Theatre. This is the first time in 45 years The Two Gentlemen of Verona has been performed in full production on the Royal Shakespeare Theatre stage.
Ticket prices as at £16.50 with concessions £2.00 discount and Friends £3.00 discount.
The Connaught Cinema is at 3 Union Place, Worthing.
