Publisher's Summary

Two Gentlemen of Verona is a comedy with a relatively small cast by Shakespeare's standards. It is possibly one of Shakespeare's first plays, and some regard it as a relatively immature work written between 1587 and 1593. It may even be Shakespeare's first play. 

This production is abridged in plain English, producing a condensed version of the play without the complexity of Shakespeare's sometimes obtuse language. Though a comedy, the play focuses on the themes of love and friendship and the conflict between them. 

This abridged theatrical production lasts around 20 minutes. Many consider the Two Gentlemen of Verona to be among Shakespeare's weaker works. It draws on the Spanish romance The Seven Books of the Diana and the work of Thomas Elyot, Arthur Brooke, and John Lyly.
