Love's Labour's Lost, Carving in Ice Theatre Company

Love's Labour's Lost   
Presented in English   
Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, Waikato University, Hamilton, New Zealand
November 15-21, 2016

The first Shakespeare production to be put on by Carving in Ice Theatre.

“A King & his 3 best friends swear off women for three years. What will happen when a Princess & her 3 best friends comes to visit? Can the men possibly resist the women? Will the women ever accept the vows of foolish men?

Shakespeare’s seldom performed romcom takes us to the Kingdom of Navarre where the quest to be in love, & speak from your true heart is marked by flirting, fooling, hunting & composing love poems. Along the way expect some 'sudden breakings-out of mirth' and the longest word in English 'honorificabilitudinitatibus'.” – Carving Ice website
