Vakomana Vaviri ve Zimbabwe or Two Gentlemen of Verona @ Rich Mix

Rich Mix / Venue 1 / £12 / £10 concs

From Verona to Milan, via Harare and Bulawayo, two great friends, Valentine and Proteus, vie for the love of the same woman. When Valentine is banished, their friendship is threatened and only through disguise, deception and intrigue are they reconciled.

In a broad, loud, triumphantly energetic ‘township’ style the two actors slip into all of the play’s fifteen characters ? from amorous suitors to sullen daughters, depressed servants and even a dog!

Using little to no props, a few items of clothing and a set that consists of no more than a trunk, the actors explore the text’s nuances from a distinctly Zimbabwean perspective, bringing Shakespeare’s verse to life in new and unfamiliar cadences.

With a watchful eye, great intuition and comic timing, the actors draw the audience into the action and create a soulful and engaging theatrical experience not to be missed.
