The Two Gentlemen of Verona

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

R

We're giving this play an "R" rating because Proteus comes pretty close to raping Silvia in Act 5, Scene 4. In fact, the threat of rape is a running theme throughout the play, which you can read more about by going to our discussion of the theme of "Violence."
