69th Annual Hofstra Shakespeare Festival: The Two Gentlemen of Verona

The Hofstra Department of Drama and Dance presents The Two Gentlemen of Verona by William Shakespeare, directed by Ilona Pierce. In what may well be Shakespeare’s first play, Valentine and Proteus, the “two gents” of the title, find their relationship put to the test when they both fall in love with the same woman. Complicating their pursuit are outlaws, rivals, a jilted lover, two mismatched servants, and even an obstinate dog!
