Love's Labour's Lost

The King of Navarre and his three companions swear a very public oath to study together and to renounce women for three years. Their honour is immediately put to the test by the arrival of the Princess of France and her three lovely companions. It's love at first sight for all concerned followed by the men's highly entertaining but hopeless efforts to disguise their feelings. Shakespeare’s sparkling romantic comedy is set in the wonderful Scholars’ Garden at St John’s.

Polished performances all round… lively and inspired… a production well-worth seeing! —The Times
