Two Gentlemen of Verona, by William Shakespeare: Valentine bids farewell to her longtime friend, Proteus, and heads from Verona to Milan, where she falls in love with the dukes daughter, Silvia. Proteus remains behind to stay with his love, Julia, but his mother sends him to join Valentine shortly thereafter. Proteus forgets all about Julia when he sees Silvia, and becomes so obsessed with her he betrays Valentine, setting up her banishment by the duke. Julia meanwhile disguises herself as a boy and travels to Milan, where she discovers Proteus is now enamored with Silvia.
