In July 2014 Simon Godwin, Associate Director of the Royal Court, made his RSC debut directing Shakespeare's exuberant romantic comedy, The Two Gentlemen of Verona.

It was 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.

The modern dress production was broadcast live into cinemas worldwide in September 2014 and was also streamed into schools.
