Love's Labour's Lost

The King of Navarre and his three besties have sworn off women and locked themselves within the castle gates to focus on studying and fasting. Unrelated, the Princess of France and her three besties arrive in the forest surrounding the castle for a glamping vacation. Needless to say, studying and fasting take a back seat in this whimsical rom-com-meets-buddy-play. Silly disguises, mistaken identities, a play-within-a-play, and all your favorite Shakespeare devises come together for a whimsical night under the stars.
