"These are barren tasks, too hard to keep,
Not to see ladies, study, fast, not sleep!"
A life of scholarship is in store for Navarre, where the King and his courtiers have made an oath renouncing worldly pleasures and commanding all the townsfolk of Navarre to do the same. But when the Princess of France and her ladies arrive on a diplomatic visit, the King and his friends find the enticements of summer love more powerful than they had imagined. A spoof of those who try to shun love and life, Love's Labor's Lost is full of witty wordplay, hilarious mishaps, and riotous comedy.
