The Two Gentlemen of Verona

Shakespeare at the Studio is a new experience – very intimate and fun.
This is a silly play, where the funniest performance was given by the dog, with good support from his master Robert Persichini (Launce) and his friend Bruce Dow (Speed.)

Dion Johnstone (Valentine) and Gareth Potter (Proteus) were delightful leading men, busy wooing Sophie Walker (Julia) and Claire Lautier (Silvia). The usual chaos ensues, but the lovers come together at the end.

A silly play that might have been funnier if it were not the last of eight plays in five days!

    Yes it is silly and slight; I see why they decided to dress it up in a silent movie motif.It was quite fun, but I was a bit played out – and what can you say about a play where the hero catches his best friend about to rape his beloved, forgives him and then offers her to him, or did I mis-hear? (Of course, Proteus apologizes, but to Valentine, not to Silvia.) And Julia takes Proteus back! Sure, this is going to work out!
