Two Gentlemen Of Verona
The Two Gentlemen of Verona
Verona
is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1589 and 1593. It is considered by some to be Shakespeare's first play,[a] and is often seen as showing his first tentative steps in laying out some of the themes and motifs with which he would later deal in more detail; for example, it is the first of his plays in which a heroine dresses as a boy. The play deals with the themes of friendship and infidelity, the conflict between friendship and love, and the foolish behaviour of people in love

Adrienne Kennedy
Adrienne Kennedy (born September 13, 1931) is an African-American playwright.[1] She is best known for her first major play, Funnyhouse of a Negro (1964).[2] Kennedy has been a force in American theater since the early 1960s, influencing generations of playwrights with her hauntingly fragmentary lyrical dramas. Exploring the violence racism visits upon people's lives, Kennedy's plays express poetic alienation, transcending the particulars of character and plot through ritualistic repetition and radical structural experimentation. Many of Kennedy's plays explore issues of race, kinship, and violence in American society, and many of her works are "autobiographically inspired."[3] In 1995, critic Michael Feingold of the Village Voice
Village Voice
declared that "with Beckett gone, Adrienne Kennedy is probably the boldest artist now writing for the theater."[4] Kennedy is noted for the use of surrealism in her plays
