Self-denial is in fashion at the court of Navarre where the young king and three of his courtiers solemnly forswear all pleasures in favour of serious study. But when the Princess of France and her entourage arrive, it isn't long before the all-male ?academe' have broken every one of their self-imposed rules. Shakespeare's boisterous send-up of all those who try to turn their back on life is a dazzling parade of every weapon in the youthful playwright's arsenal, from excruciating cross-purposes and impersonations to drunkenness and bust-ups. It's a banquet of language, groaning with puns, rhymes and grotesque coinages.Performers Kolade Agboke, Beatriz Batarda, Syan Blake, Stephen Casey, Michael Cronin, Deidre Doone, Nick Fletcher, Grant Gillespie, Anwen Hughes-Robert, Gerald Kyd, Podraig McIntyre, Damien O'Hare, Kirsten Parker, John Quentin, Thomas Wheatley.
