Love's Labour's Lost (Shakespeare's Globe)

Philip Cumbus (King of Navarre); Trystan Gravelle (Berowne); William Mannering (Longaville); Jack Farthing (Dumaine); Michelle Terry (Princess of France);

Stage Director(s): 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. Using every kind of verbal gymnastics to poke fun, Shakespeares most intellectual comedy is brought to hilarious life in Dominic Dromgooles highly entertaining production, rich in visual humour and sexual innuendo. Jonathan Fensoms knot garden and original music by Claire van Kampen create the framework for an engaging performance by an excellent cast. Filmed live in High Definition and true surround sound.

Reviews

"Dominic Dromgoole’s zestful production succeeds in captivating the audience to a degree that I would not have thought possible...It’s a treat" (The Independent)

"With a delightful design and jaunty music it has abundant charm...Entirely enchanting." (The Times)
