Description

The Bodleian Library and the Oxford Playhouse are delighted to be welcoming back the Globe Theatre on Tour this July to perform Two Gentlemen of Verona in the stunning outdoor setting of the Bodleian Library's Old Schools Quadrangle.

Get your summer soaring by seeing one of Shakespeare's most charming comedies in the unique outdoor setting of the Old Schools Quadrangle.

Valentine loves Silvia and Proteus loves Julia - but Proteus is fickle, and falls for Silvia too. Join a joyful ensemble of players as they bounce between elopements, betrayals and forest-dwelling outlaws - plus a bit with a dog. Along the way, they play out Shakespeare's immortal themes of deceit, love and friendship.

This riotous new production will delight with songs, romance and chaos, hurling Shakespeare's anarchic comedy into the 21st century.

Tuesday 19-Sunday 31 July (excluding Monday 25 July)

There will be a matinee and an evening performance on both Sunday 24 July and Sunday 31 July.
