Bear witness as Shakespeare’s most poetic love story comes to vivid life in cinemas nationwide. Vowing to devote themselves to study, the King of Navarre and his courtiers Dumaine, Longaville and Berowne swear off the company of women for three years. But no sooner is their oath taken than it is put to the test when four attractive young women – the Princess of France and her companions Katharine, Maria and Rosaline – arrive on a diplomatic mission. Meanwhile, an eccentric Spanish nobleman, Don Armado, has become infatuated with a country wench, Jaquenetta. In the ensuing flurry of mix-ups and masquerades, it becomes clear that not all of life’s lessons can be learned from books.

Helmed by Tony and Olivier award-winning director John Caird. A coming-of-age story unlike any other, Love’s Labour’s Lost dwells sweetly on the naiveté of youth while leading its protagonists to understand the true meaning – and cost – of love. Starring Ruby Joy, Mike Shara, Sarah Afful, Juan Chioran, Josue Laboucane, Tom Rooney and Sanjay Talwar, “it’s impossible to say who gives the most delicious performance in this comic feast” (Torontoist).
