"The Two Gentlemen of Verona"

The University of Notre Dame Department of Film, Television and Theatre (FTT), in partnership with the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival, will present William Shakespeare’s “The Two Gentlemen of Verona” April 5 to 10 (Tuesday to Sunday) in the Decio Mainstage Theatre of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center.

Directed by Donald Carrier (Stratford Shakespeare Festival, The Old Globe Theatre, Chicago Shakespeare Theatre), the play is the first collaboration between FTT and the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival.

Love might make the world go ‘round, but Shakespeare never promises it will be an easy ride. In this classic tale, two young men travel to Milan and fall in love with the same woman. Thus begins a tale of friendship and romance in one of the Bard’s earliest and most lyrical comedies. Witty servants, outlaw kings, disguised maidens, and one very ill-behaved dog add to the mix as the two gentlemen seek to the win the hand of the fairest woman in the land.

Tickets are available online or by calling the ticket office at 574-631-2800. Admission is $15 for the general public, $12 for faculty, staff and seniors, and $10 for all students. A complete schedule of performances and ticket information are available at performingarts.nd.edu.
