Two Gentlemen of Verona

Except I be by Silvia in the night,
There is no music in the nightingale;
Unless I look on Silvia in the day,
There is no day for me to look upon.

One of Shakespeare’s earliest plays—its debut is undated, but some scholars believe it may be his first—is also an early forefather of the rom-com genre. But while the disguises, woodsy jaunts, changeable hearts, and happy ending may feel familiar, the play’s darker elements keep audiences guessing throughout all five acts. The plot concerns Proteus and Valentine, two gentlemen (yes, from Verona) whose friendship seems unshakeable. When Proteus journeys to join Valentine in Milan, however, he turns his back on both his friend and his devoted paramour, Julia. The reason, of course, is love: Proteus falls head over heels for Silvia, the object of Valentine’s affections. It’s here where the play takes an unexpected turn, with Julia pursuing her love disguised as a man, thugs kidnapping Silvia, and all manner of other mishaps befalling the quartet.
