Surrey Advertiser, Essential Surrey

The Stage

Our 34th show saw us return to the beautiful gardens of the University of Law for a 1950s Italian-set Two Gents. This was the first time we had staged Shakespeare's first comedy since 2009 and once again it proved a huge hit, attracting 2780 people. Together with Dream, 2017 became our most popular summer to date.

Charlotte Conquest returned to direct, along with Neil Irish designing and Matt Eaton on Sound. Joining the same company as Dream, were Buddy, Jen and Tiba who between them shared the role of Launce's dog Crab. Check them out in the teaser opposite!

“This is a superb summer evening's entertainment, full of verve and wit, laughter and music.”

Essential Surrey

 

“We are catapulted from the 1590s into the 1950s and the effect is stunning …live music, confidence, colour, pace and panache.” Surrey Advertiser

 

“Fresh and accessible…the pleasant aesthetic is an ideal match for this bright and breezy summer show.”

The Stage

“…an evening of pure theatrical pleasure.” British Theatre Guide

"...an absolute delight last night. Stylish Shakespeare as the sun goes down; can’t really fault it"

"There’s no better way to spend a lovely summer evening than watching the fabulous @GuildfordBard and their #gsc2gents. A total joy."

"They just get better and better... tangible Shakespeare for everyone"
