Love’s Labour’s Lost
by William Shakespeare
directed by Barrie Rutter
Take four dashing young men.
Add a vow of celibacy.
Throw in a handful of beautiful young women …
and wait for the sparks to fly!!!!
Northern Broadsides celebrates its 20th anniversary year with a delicious comedy that will entertain and delight. Romantic, mischievous and filled with youthful exuberance, Love’s Labour’s Lost fizzes like bubbles in a champagne glass.
Barrie Rutter directs a charismatic cast of 17 multi-talented northern actors who will literally fill the stage in this fast-paced battle of the sexes. In true Broadsides’ style there’ll be rousing song and dance, scintillating performances, jaw-dropping comic timing and hilarious ‘steal-the-show’ scenes.
