Princesses, Spanish knights and young lovers required for Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost”
Take four dashing young men,
Add a vow of celibacy,
Some beautiful young women,
A foolish Spanish knight
And watch the chaos unfold in Shakespeare’s early comedy of hilarity, satire and romance. With a cast of seventeen, plots and sub-plots plus a play within a play, expect a riot as everyone comes to discover that true love doesn’t necessarily conquer all.
