Proteus and Valentine, best friends from childhood, travel to the court of the Duke of Milan where they will be educated in the ways of the world. Dazzled by the beauty and sophistication of the city, the young men’s friendship is put to the test when both fall in love with the Duke’s daughter, Silvia. Shakespeare blends hilarity and tenderness in this examination of the transformative power of love: love at first sight, love between friends, infatuation, and the path to lasting love.
Young love, with a 1950′s rock ‘n’ roll twist. And a dog. Paul Barnes directs; Jack Forbes Wilson (GRSF’s “Comedy of Errors”) provides musical adaption.
