Love's Labour's Lost archiveSelf-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. Supported by KPMG. Costumes generously supported by Ian and Caroline Cormack.
Performers Joseph Fiennes (Berowne), Kate Fleetwod (Rosaline), Olivia Williams (The Princess of France), John Barrowman (Dumaine), Simon Day (King of Navarre), Anthony Cable, Paul Grunert, Richard Henders, Akiya Henry, Tam Mutu, Denis Quilley (Boyet), Robin Soans (Holofernes).
