Love’s Labour’s Lost

February 22 - March 24, 2017 | Margeson Theater

Self-denial is in fashion at the court of Navarre where a young King and three of his courtiers solemnly forswear all pleasures in favor of serious study. But the Princess of France and her all-too-lovely entourage have other ideas. The men soon find that love’s labor complicates and conquers all things in Shakespeare’s boisterous romantic comedy about love and marriage.

“THE BEST play I have seen at the Orlando Shakes this season. The cast brings the play to life with marvelous characters and great humor. I am sure this production would be understood and enjoyed by all…even by those unfamiliar with the play.”
