Love's Labour's Lost

“If you have been longing to encounter greatness in the theatre, it’s waiting for you at the Stratford Festival.”
Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star

“I can’t think of another theatre company in the world currently offering such variety stylistically –and all of it at the highest standard, too.… The company is feeling like an international mecca for Shakespeare.”
J. Kelly Nestruck, The Globe and Mail

“Nirvana for theatre fans”

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.

SpectiCast is proud to present this Stratford Festival production, 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. This “sublime” (Toronto Star) “masterpiece” (National Post) was called “the most vibrant production of the play I’ve ever seen” (am New York). 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).
