It is a tearful farewell for best mates, Valentine and Proteus. Valentine takes a gap year to travel and see the world, while Proteus stays home, committed to his girlfriend, Julia. But his overbearing mother intervenes, insisting Proteus, too, should broaden his horizons and follow Valentine, leaving Proteus and Julia heartbroken.

However, all is not lost! Julia has a plan to disguise herself as a boy, (because what Shakespeare play would be complete without a good girl-dressed-as-boy storyline?) and, unbeknown to Proteus, follows him on his travels.

Meanwhile, in Milan, Valentine has fallen in love with the Duke’s feisty daughter, Silvia. But now, Proteus has forgotten all about Julia, and only has eyes for Sylvia… whatever the cost!
How far is Proteus willing to go to win Sylvia? Will friendship win over infatuation? And will Julia keep hold of her man?
