"O heaven," says Proteus, "were man but constant, he were perfect." And Proteus would know: After exchanging rings with Julia, he travels to Milan and falls so hard for the Duke's daughter that he offers her Julia's ring and snitches out his best friend, Valentine, who's planned to elope with her. (All together now: Men. Hmph.) Over the next month, Bare Theatre presents Shakespeare's play, free, at six unconventional public spaces across the region, including an office park in RTP, a Hillsborough bar, and Durham's Brightleaf Square. This weekend, it's five daytime shows outside of the N.C. Museum of History (where a copy of the First Folio is on exhibit). Tour locations, dates, and times are on the company's website. —Byron Woods
