Love’s Labor’s Lost is about how fiercely we as people want to connect and how we will find ways to do so even when circumstances — like the strict quarantine of a global pandemic — make it difficult.  In the play, a young king brings his entire kingdom along as he embarks on an experiment in extreme isolation: they vow they will study for 18 months and, in that time, not engage in any distractions – most especially romantic temptations. But, like for so many of us in quarantine, the allure of “breaking the bubble” and making human connection is very strong. As we’ve seen over the course of our stay-at-home year, mix-ups, workarounds, and hilarious blunders ensue as characters labor to win love in strange times.

Tickets are free, but registration is required.
