OPSFest: “Two Gentlemen of Verona”
August 19 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Original Practice Shakespeare Festival (OPSFest) presents a free performance of “Two Gentlemen of Verona” at the Shakes Beer Festival at Say Ciao! Bistro.
The Story: Protheus loves Julia. Valentine travels. Valentine loves Sylvia. Speed loves bed. Launce loves a dog. Protheus changes his mind, loves Sylvia, betrays Valentine, betrays Julia, betrays Thurio, and generally acts like a privileged child. Valentine, banished, becomes outlaw king. Julia dresses as a boy. Protheus is foiled and forgiven. Weddings.
OPSFest brings no-cost repertory Shakespeare to parks and venues all over the Portland Metro area. The company uses the original practice techniques of Elizabethan England: limited rehearsal, scrolls in hand, audience interaction, and an onstage prompter.
