Shakespeare as you've never seen it before

A group of actors at the Cockpit Theatre will perform Shakespeare's Two Gentlemen of Verona in a way it has rarely been seen before.

The cast have not rehearsed as a group and have only learned their own lines and stage direction. The method is known as 'cue script technique' is the way it would have been performed when it was first written.

It's all time to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the playwright's death.
