LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST
Directed by Charles McMahon
Friday, April 24 at 7:30PM
Love's Labour's Lost is Shakespeare's satirical take on the intellectual ambitions and pretensions of four young men of Navarre who take a vow of celibacy just before the women of their dreams arrive from France. The youths' comeuppance is comically inevitable as they twist themselves into impossible knots of logic in a futile attempt to have their cake and eat it too.
