William Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost
View the Program ✦ Watch the Stream ✦ Premiered
“Navarre shall be the wonder of the world;
Our court shall be a little Academe.”
So begins William Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, a play where words, learning, and intellect are valued above all else. The King and Lords of Navarre have sworn to study, swearing off love and contact with the outside world; this oath is soon complicated by the arriving Princess of France and her entourage.
A battle of wits, words, and politics fills this love story that takes us on unexpected twists and turns in this play that is not quite the comedy it seems to be. Director Joshua M. Feder leads this contemporary virtual production that explores the joys and challenges of these romances, friendships, and scholarly values.
Company News & Resources
Women in American Theatre (2022)
Theatre history is full of women, including times and places when they were either completely banned from it or were the only ones allowed to make it. All this history influences American Theatre, as well as the cultures and histories of every woman who struts her hour upon the stage (or behind the curtain).
For Women’s History Month 2022, we have collected seven female theatremakers we think you should know about. Essays about them can be found here, as well as on our social media pages.
