About the event
NB: This performance is indoors.
Four Lovers, Three Clowns, Two Rings and One Dog … The Two Gentlemen of Verona is Shakespeare’s original comedy! Valentine of Verona embarks on a journey to Milan, his best friend Proteus following in his footsteps despite leaving his fiancée Julia behind. But what befuddlement and trouble will be set in motion when both gents fall in love with Silvia in Milan? Julia, disguised as a man follows the gents but will she like what she finds as Proteus does everything in his power to sabotage Valentine despite Silvia’s rejection?
Believed by many to be Shakespeare’s earliest, the play contains all the iconic elements one would expect in a romantic comedy - love letters, disguises, poetry, music, situational slap-stick humour and even a trip to the woods! The play clearly meshes original ideas and characters that can be found in the Bard’s later works – Twelfth Night, As You Like It, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo & Juliet would be just to name a few! A rarely performed piece, this short, zippy, energetic, slap-stick powerhouse of surprises packs a wallop which is not to be missed!
We had a really tough time earlier this year. The closure of Bexhill Manor Barn in February wrought financial chaos for BC with money lost to the prepaid 2023 bookings, further finances wasted on advertising that could not be recalled and the loss of a popular sell out venue to boot ... but thanks to an abundance of kind donations, we're back at Manor Barn with Two Gents!
A huge thank you to all who donated from us all at Bowler Crab. Your support during that difficult time helped Bowler Crab fight off our financial difficulties. In just over a week, Bowler Crab almost made back the losses paid to book the venue for our 2023 events and the advertising we were unable to recall.
The support of our faithful fans has directly ensuring that we do not have to scale back our future plans despite such immediate losses and Bexhill Manor Barn, under new management is back on our menu!
