uReport: 'The Two Gentlewomen of Verona' staged at Berczy Park

WhatsOn Aug 12, 2017 City Centre Mirror

Immersive, intersectional, feminist fun — Two Gentlewomen of Verona is in full swing after a successful opening weekend with Dauntless City Theatre’s reimagining of William Shakespeare’s rarely-staged comedy.

Produced, stage managed and assistant directed by women, Two Gentlewomen of Verona continues Dauntless City Theatre’s long tradition of achieving gender parity both on and offstage. This year’s cast includes four men, five women and one trans-non binary person. Dauntless’ commitment to inclusive casting of all kinds continues with a team that reflects the racial, gender and sexual diversity that gives Toronto its strength. Scott Emerson Moyle (director of the Dora Award-nominated cast of Solar Stage’s Treasure Island) directs.

Remaining performances are Aug. 12 to 27, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 1 p.m. All performances are accessible to users of mobility devices and are pay what you can. Performances take place at Berczy Park (yes, that park with the dog fountain), 35 Wellington St. E.

Lifelong friends Proteus and Valentine part ways when Valentine goes backpacking through Italy to find herself. She finds the duke’s son Silvio instead, and they enjoy a covert, courtly romance. Proteus is happy at home in love with her lover Julian, but her mom quickly sends her to join Valentine in Milan. Proteus and Julian exchange rings before she leaves, but her promise to them and her loyalty to Valentine are quickly forgotten when she lays eyes on Silvio.
