'The Two Gentlemen Of Verona'


Derby Playhouse


13th - 17th March 1973


Pat Laurie

March 1973 marked our first ever production of 'The Two Gentlemen Of Verona', directed by Pat Laurie at the old Derby Playhouse theatre in Sacheveral Street, Derby.

It would be nearly thirty years before we produced this play again in the grounds of Elvaston Castle in 2001.

We hope to be able to add more information and photographs from this production soon.
