Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Love’s Labor’s Lost: The 30-Minute Shakespeare plays three action-packed scenes from this tale of King Navarre and his three lords, who have vowed to retire from women for three years. Naturally, the Princess of France and her three ladies arrive, and comedic courtship ensues.

The cutting includes the ridiculous dance of the lords disguised as Russians, the hysterical “Pageant of the Nine Worthies,” and a dramatic, bittersweet ending that leaves the King and the three lords laboring for love.

The edition includes a preface by Nick Newlin containing helpful advice on how to put on a Shakespeare performance in a high school class with novice actors, as well as an appendix with suggestions for the specific play and recommendations for further resources.
