Two Gentlemen of Verona : Direct from Shakespeare's Globe in London - Staff discount available Other events...
UK Arts International and University Theatres presents Two Gentlemen of Verona Direct from Shakespeare’s Globe, London

Starring Tonderai Munyevu & Denton Chikura Australian Premiere

“Uproariously entertaining” **** The Guardian

Staff discount available - see below for details.

From Verona to Milan, by way of Harare and Bulawayo, two great friends, Valentine and Proteus, vie for the love of the same woman. When Valentine is banished, their friendship is threatened and only through disguise, deception and intrigue are they reconciled.

In broad, loud, triumphantly energetic ‘township’ style the two actors slip into all of the play’s fifteen characters – from amorous suitors to sullen daughters, depressed servants and even a dog!

“Denton Chikura is a wonderful clown… Tonderai Munyevu has a delightful comic elasticity of expression… Together they make a fine double act” – Time Out

The New Fortune Theatre, a hidden gem in UWA’s beautiful grounds, is the southern hemisphere’s only Elizabethan-style theatre. As the resident peacocks roost and the summer stars come out, experience theatre as Shakespeare intended!
