BBC presents the classic play by William Shakespeare starring such greats as Tyler Butterworth and Tessa Peake-Jones. Valentine leaves Verona for Milan, but best friend Proteus is reluctant to join him as he has fallen in love with Julia. When Proteus eventually joins Valentine in Milan, Valentine shares the news that he has fallen in love with the duke’s daughter and plans to elope with her. Proteus meets the daughter of the duke, Silvia, and promptly falls in love with her, too, forgetting Julia. When Julia visits Milan in search of Proteus, she disguises herself as a young page, Sebastian. What then unfolds is a classic Shakespearian Comedy full of hidden identities, misguided love and eventual reconciliation.
