Love Labour's Lost and Won Trailer

Summer 1914. Dedicating themselves to a life of study, the King and his friends take an oath to avoid the company of women for three years – but then the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive. Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy mischievously suggests that the highest of all academic endeavours is the study of the opposite sex. Only at the end of the play is the merriment curtailed as the lovers agree to spend time apart, unaware that the world around them is about to be transformed by war.
