Breakdancing Shakespeare

Love’s Labour’s Lost

Monday, August 11th – Wednesday, August 13th
7:00pm

Love’s Labours Lost is the tale of the King of Navarre, who, along with his three friends, vows to abstain from the company of women for a period of three years and to devote themselves entirely to study. Unfortunately, the men make this vow just as the lovely Princess of France and her three equally lovely companions arrive in Navarre! Romance, mischief, and mayhem ensue in this clever battle of the sexes, as the King and his friends learn that love is the most worthy of all pursuits!
