The Chesil Theatre starts December with one of Shakespeare’s classic comedies Love’s Labour’s Lost.
With a cast of 17, this production promises to be an evening of mischief and mayhem as it welcomes you into the world of one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays. In this romantic comedy we join the King of Navarre and his three noble companions just as they are about to immerse themselves in study, not letting anything interfere – not even women. Follow these four dashing young men as the Princess of France arrives with her ladies-in-waiting and watch their love-struck hearts melt alongside their oath of celibacy. Pranks, poems and old-school romanticism give way to more serious matters showing the cost of true love.
Director, Noel Thorpe-Tracey, said: “Love’s Labour’s Lost is about the folly of pseudo-intellectual study and of love. Of all Shakespeare’s comedies this is one rich in hilarity and satire, sparkling language with lively romantic young people and pretentious old fools and is sure to have something for everyone.”
The production runs from 1 December to 8December at 7.45pm with a matinee on 8th December.
