Love's Labor's Lost


Mind vs. Matter. Game on!

A young king and his three confidants renounce the company of women in favor of scholarly pursuits. Their pact is immediately jeopardized, however, when the Princess of France and her three fair companions arrive. Will the men stand resolute and keep their monastic vows—or surrender to the charms of the opposite sex? Shakespeare’s playful, quick-witted comedy is full of lovers and clowns, foolery and the follies of the heart.
