What could possibly be better than a love story?

Well, how about 5 love stories?

Love’s Labour’s Lost is a joyous comic masterpiece written early in Shakespeare’s career. It's filled with romance, riotous fun, wit and humour.

Ferdinand, the young king of Navarre and his three companions, have sworn an oath to dedicate themselves to study for three years, during which time no woman shall come within a mile of them.

They sign the oath, but almost immediately the Princess of France and her three ladies-in-waiting arrive to discuss her father’s debts to the King. The men fall instantly in love, break the oath and the fun begins.
