The Two Gentlemen of Verona
The Two Gentleman of Verona is broadcast 3 September 2014
Valentine and Proteus are best friends until they both fall in love with the Duke's daughter Silvia. But Proteus is already sworn to his sweetheart Julia at home in Verona, and the Duke thinks Valentine is not good enough for his Silvia.
With friendship forgotten, the rivals' affections quickly get out of hand as the four young lovers find themselves on a wild chase through the woods, confused by mistaken identity and threatened by fierce outlaws before they find a path to reconciliation.
