Reviews
Berry, Ralph. ‘Stratford Festival Canada’. Shakespeare Quarterly 36, no. 1 (Spring, 1985), pp87-93 (in review article). Berry writes ‘The Two Gentlemen of Verona was the sort of young production one hopes not to see, collectivised immaturity tricked out in contemporary gear, punk Shakespeare’.
