The Two Gentlemen of Verona

William Shakespeare

The Two Gentlemen of Verona is one of Shakespeare's earliest plays and also one of the most rarely performed. It's about betrayal, love and disguise.

Past productions

There have been over a dozen productions of The Two Gentlemen of Verona performed at our theatres in Stratford-upon-Avon since 1879.

Most performances have taken place on the Swan Theatre stage, or been touring productions. Our 2014 production, directed by Simon Godwin, marked the first time in 45 years that The Two Gentlemen of Verona had been performed in a full production on the Royal Shakespeare Theatre stage.
