About: The Two Gentlemen of Verona

A fresh, raw and energetic performance of one of Shakespeare’s earliest comedies tells the tale of friendship, love and betrayal.

Best friends Valentine and Proteus travel to Milan and find themselves caught in a love triangle with the daughter of the Duke. Proteus’ beloved from home follows him to Milan disguised as a boy, only to discover she has been betrayed...

The performers use their bodies to create a continually changing tableau that forms a playful backdrop to the drama. Traditional Brazilian song punctuates the production, supported by a trio of onstage musicians.

Performance time: 19:45 (also 14:30 on 18 Oct)
Running time: 100 mins/inc interval

In Portuguese with English subtitles

Nós do Morro, or translated ‘Us from the Hillside’ is a theatre group founded by actor Guti Fraga amongst others in 1986, in the community of Vidigal – a favela in Rio de Janiero. Its mission is to give its members access to the world of art, culture and education. The group has presented over 30 plays since 1986.

The Audiovisual Centre of Nós do Morro has produced four short films written by young people, winning international awards at festivals in France and Brazil. Roberta Rodrigues, the female lead Sylvia, starred in Fernando Mierelles’ award-winning film City of God.
