Love's Labour's Lost

William Shakespeare
Shakespeare's Globe
Directed by Dominic Dromgoole

When the King of Navarre and his three courtiers forswear all pleasure - particularly of the female variety - in favour of a life of study, the arrival of the Princess of France and her ladies plays havoc with their intentions.

Shakespeare's most intellectual comedy is brought to hilarious life by Dominic Dromgoole's 2009 Shakespeare's Globe production.
