The plot of the play centers around Valentine and Proteus, the two gentlemen of Verona, who travel to Milan and learn about the world of courtship. They are best friends.

Using the ploy of disguises, true love prevails and the friends are reconciled and look to share 'one mutual happiness'
Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen: Universally condemned in 1890 when it was written, Hedda Gabler has since become one of Ibsen's most frequently performed plays.

Too frightened of scandal to become involved with a brilliant, wayward writer, she opts for a conventional but loveless marriage in the hope of finding surrogate fulfilment through her husband's career. Collaboration with Actors Bridge Ensemble.
