Love’s Labour’s Lost
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Mary Machala

The idealistic resolve of four young men gets tested by four young ladies who show up at their doorstep.  The King and his friends vow to abstain from women’s company for three years. They plan to devote their time to academics. The Princess of France and her ladies arrive for a visit just as the vows leave the men’s lips. It’s will against want and heart against head in this delightful summer romance.
