Love’s Labour’s Lost RSC at the Theatre Royal Haymarket
The RSC Chichester Festival Theatre productions of Christopher Luscombe’s heart-warming double bill Love’s Labour’s Lost and Much Ado about Nothing (or Love’s Labour’s Won) will play a limited West End season.
Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy delights in championing and then unravelling an unrealistic vow, and mischievously suggesting that the study of the opposite sex is in fact the highest of all academic endeavours.
Love’s Labour’s Lost RSC will run from 9 December 2016 until 18 March 2017 at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
‘We lose ourselves to keep our oaths.’
Summer 1914. In order to dedicate themselves to a life of study, the King and his friends take an oath to avoid the company of women for three years. No sooner have they made their idealistic pledge than the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, presenting the men with a severe test of their high-minded resolve.
The cast features Edward Bennett, Lisa Dillon, Sam Alexander, John Arthur, William Belchambers, Paige Carter, Rebecca Collingwood, Nick Harris, Nick Haverson, John Hodgkinson, Tunji Kasim, Emma Manton, Chris McCalphy, Peter McGovern, Chris Nayak, Jamie Newall, Steven Pacey, Roderick Smith, Jamie Tyler, Harry Waller, Anna Wheatley and Leah Whitaker.
Directed by Christopher Luscombe with design by Simon Higlett and composition by Nigel Hess.
