SUMMARY

Verona’s best of friends, Proteus and Valentine, are to be separated when Valentine is sent from Milan to experience the wider world; or, in this case, to fall in love with the Duke’s daughter Silvia. Proteus stays for love of Julia, but not for long. Once sent to Milan, he too falls for Silvia – and out of love for her, he is willing to betray his best friend and his lady-love. Not that Julia will take that betrayal lying down…

“It is the lesser blot, modesty finds,

Women to change their shapes than men their minds.”

Throw in one quick-witted (and one not-so-quick-witted) servant, a faithful canine companion, some tommy-gun-toting gangsters, a big band singer, and a vastly emotionally ambiguous ending, and you’re in for a good time.

We will be setting the show in the Big Band era and constructing a travelling-show style set, complete with suns and moons on strings, a genuine street lamp, and a piano.

Barbarian Productions can only pre-sell enough tickets for our wet-weather venue, the Blue Boar Auditorium in Christ Church College, even if we sell out, if the weather is good grab a picnic blanket, grab some friends, grab some snacks, and come down and buy tickets at the door.

Drinks, snacks, and blankets will be available for purchase at the show.

Admission: £8(£5)
