"Two Gentlemen* of Verona"
William Shakespeare's "Two Gentlemen of Verona" tells the story of Valentine and Proteus, two gentlemen who fall in love with the same woman. As Valentine leaves Verona to travel to Milan, Proteus remains behind to woo his first love, Julia. But a complex dynamic soon emerges, as Valentine falls in love with a young woman named Sylvia, and Proteus (while on a visit to Milan), falls in love with her as well.
In a moment when many of the titans of art and entertainment are being hoisted by their own sexual petards, Coin & Ghost's gender-flipped production confronts the roles of power, privilege, and sex in modern society. Is it riskier to call out the truth or pretend not to see? Directed by Marguerite French, C&Gs "Two Gents*" tackles one of The Bard's many "problem plays" in a subversive, timely light.
