Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost

February 2021
Directed by Meg Sullivan

One of Shakespeare’s wittiest shows! The King of Navarre & his followers, Berowne, Longaville, & Dumain, vow to devote themselves to the celibate life of scholarship for three years. The Princess of France & her attendant ladies, Rosaline, Maria, and Katherine decide to force the men to break their vows. Each of the men falls prey to the charms of the ladies & rationalizes his change of heart in the cleverest academic rhetoric he can write into a sonnet. When the gentlemen disguise themselves & pursue them as Russians in an elaborate courtly masque, the ladies confuse them by donning disguises also. The entertainments are cut short by the announcement of the Princess's father's death, & a period of one year's abstinence is imposed on the men before they will be allowed to consummate their loves.
