THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA – Touring

In Opinion, Plays, Regional theatre, Reviews, Touring by Matt MerrittLeave a Comment

Shakespeare’s early plays are often problematic, with the bawdier comedies such as The Comedy of Errors the faults are hidden within some gloriously silly slapstick, but in The Two Gentlemen Of Verona (quite possibly the first play in Will’s canon) the flaws are writ large. Nonetheless, Shakespeare’s Globe’s gloriously silly touring production makes for a largely enjoyable evening.
