TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA - Grand Canyon University - February 10 - 19, 2017
“Love is your master, for he masters you: And he that is so yoked by a fool, Methinks, should not be chronicled for wise.”
This Shakespearean comedy finds two young friends, Valentine and Proteus, making their way from Verona to Milan. Valentine’s father is sending him to take a position in the Duke of Milan’s court, and Proteus accompanies him reluctantly, not wanting to leave his beloved Julia. While in Milan, Valentine falls for the Duke’s daughter. From here, things get considerably more complicated as the bosom buddies find themselves torn between the bonds of friendship and romance. This production is considered the “granddaddy” of modern buddy comedies and thought by some scholars to be one of the first plays by William Shakespeare. GCU alumnus Scott Campbell will return to direct this season’s annual nod to The Bard of Avon. The story is about friendship, conflict between friends, love and the silly behavior of people in love.
