Dauntless City Theatre

Classical Theatre where you least expect it

Dauntless is back in Berczy Park (yes, that one with the dog fountain) for an intersectional feminist reimagining of Shakespeare’s rarely-staged comedy. Adventure! Music! A dog in a tiny hat!

#BFFs Proteus and Valentine part ways when Valentine goes backpacking through Italy to find herself. She finds the duke’s son Silvio instead, and they enjoy a covert courtly romance. Proteus is happy at home in love with her #bae Julian, but her mom quickly sends her to join Valentine in Milan. Proteus and Julian exchange rings before she leaves, but her promise to them and her loyalty to Valentine are quickly forgotten when she lays eyes on Silvio… #Adulting is hard.
