The cast was well spoken and the performance was only diminished by my lack of familiarity with the Shakespearean dialogue. It seemed mostly true to the book although the production was a mix of period costume and contemporary dress. I liked the venue and enjoyed the picnic prior to the play in the adjoining park. We were also pleased that we were allowed to bring what remained of the bottle of wine inside (although I think we were the only couple that did)... It is a very intimate setting and I once inside was well protected from the evening breeze.

More fun than a hayride! Two guys, two girls, two cities, and a dog!
This play has love vs. friendship, male bonding, a conniving protagonist, and tricksterism at its best. Throw in a pastoral forest, a gang of outlaws, and a cross-dressing heroine — all performed with youthful energy, and you’ve got one heck of an evening of fun.
Two Gentlemen of Verona was the first of Shakespeare’s plays in which he used the device of the heroine dressing as a boy.
