Performance Details - Two Gentlemen of Verona
Philips/Dare, Royal Shakespeare Company, July 1970
"Daphne Dare's ramped set is dominated by a group of revolving doors and carry magnified silhouettes from behind. We also get a cantilevered balcony jutting vacantly across the stage until Silvia takes possession of it at half-time. And when Antonio mooches on like a Mafia boss dropping his cigar ash into the outstretched hand of an obsequious crony, Miss Dare even arranges for him to take a dip in the water-filled trap." Irving Wardle, Times 24.7.70
Opening Date: 23 July 1970
