Love's Labour's Lost is back on the West End!
Do not miss this winter's season of two great Shakespeare's plays at the Theatre Royal Haymarket.
Love's Labour's Lost is one of Shakespeare's earliest plays. It was published in 1598 and is assumed to be written between 1594 and 1595, included in Shakespeare's First Folio. It is famous for its use of rhetoric and witty exchanges.
The story follows the King of Navarre and his three companions in their trying to give up on the company of women for three years. Instead, they aim to study and fast. However, their plans go astray as Princess of Aquitaine and her ladies cross their paths...
Not being a typical comedy, Love's Labour's Lost does not end with a marriage as usual for other Shakespeare's comedies. Play within the play also goes on, as the characters themselves comment on the ending of the play being not happy, hence the famous: "Our wooing doth not end like an old play/ Jack hath not Jill: these ladies' courtesy/ Might well have made our sport a comedy" (V.ii.867-9)

Excellent production. Great play. Beautiful theatre. Extremely helpful staff.

Disappointing overall, though quite fun at times. But Shakespeare's blank verse was laboured, rushed and not very clearly annunciated by many characters, so hard to follow. Usually when the RSC or NT do Shakespeare the words are so well spoken that within 5-10 minutes you cease to be aware the characters are speaking in blank verse. I wouldn't recommend it. Hope for better when we go to Much ado about nothing.

We really enjoyed the play. It was very funny and well produced.

Excellent silly word-comedy for 90%, and then over-the-top great with shift in last minutes to World War I motif. Made sense of the Edwardian decor in a second!
Wonderful production and beautiful music. Very moving

Fantastic production, really well done and entertaining.
It has everything you want in a (Shakespeare) play; love, death, comedy, confused identities, pomp, etc. The RSC was superb!

A very slick production. Brilliant sets
Amusing production, if a bit Gilbert and Sullivan!
The story line was confusing. The actors did their parts well. But the director seems to have taken license with the original tale and made it into something almost unrecognizable. If you want to see Shakesphere, this may not be for you.

A clear, well-spoken, attractively staged production of a less-well known play - really brought to life

Perfection! A great performance in all respects. Had not expected to enjoy it half as much.
