The Two Gentlemen of Verona at Liverpool Everyman Theatre, Hope Street 5 — 29 October 2016 Tickets from £9.50 — Book now

Thought by some to be Shakespeare’s first play, The Two Gentlemen of Verona is the bard at his bawdy best. A chaotic comedy that includes a dog called Crab (who, by the way, is a total scene-stealer), it deals with issues of love, licentiousness and lewd behaviour.

Globe Theatre is making a lot of good work right now, and with former Kneehigh leader Emma Rice in charge I expect its shows to become even more imaginative. This one boasts a live band (almost always a good thing) some pretty sharp suits and impressive staging. Yes, it might not be Shakespeare’s greatest play, but it is an awful lot of fun.
