Shakespeare's play, performed in the round, for just 50 people a night, by actors who prepare and serve and eight course tasting menu as part of the action of the play!

The ailing King of France owes the King of Navarre money. Unable to make the trip himself, France entrusts his daughter to go negotiate the settlement. But just before she and her ladies (Rosaline and Maria) arrive, Navarre and his men (Berowne and Longaville) make a pact to swear off women, eat only 6 meals a week, and sleep only 3 hours a night so that they can spend the rest of their time devoted to study. By the time the women arrive the men are exhausted, hungry, and lonely. Nonetheless, Navarre sticks to the plan and tells the women that they may not enter the gates and must instead camp outside in the field. The women, having none of it, hatch a plan to outsmart the men.

BWW Review: LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST, Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
by Laura Jones - Aug 31, 2018

Love's Labour's Lost is one of Shakespeare's earlier comedies and has never been one of his more popular plays. Even attempts to make it more appealing by Kenneth Branagh in 2000 by turning it into a musical did little to sway public opinion.
