It is really heart-warming to know that some of the productions staged during the Globe to Globe festival 2012 have continued to be staged around the world, quite often in countries other than those that produced them. The Two Gentlemen of Verona by Zimbabwean company Two Gents Productions was already an established production before coming to the Globe, having been performed throughout Europe since 2008. Now Australia will have the chance to see this skilful and funny two man show.
On 21 January they will perform on the New Fortune Stage at the University of Western Australia. This is Australia’s reconstructed Elizabethan theatre. Friends of Shakespeare’s Globe are eligible for a $5 discount on tickets until 27 January.
There is more information about the performance on the University Theatres Facebook page.
The production will then go on to perform elsewhere in Australia at:
6-9 March The Merrigong Theatre, Wollongong, NSW
12- 16 March The Riverside Theatre, Parramatta, NSW
19-21 March The Street Theatre, Canberra, ACT
Several productions from Globe to Globe 2012 return to the Globe this year. See the Shakespeare’s Globe website for details of productions and special offers.
