“Love is a familiar; Love is a devil. There is no evil angel but Love!”
There are disguises, flirtations, silly dancing, hilarity and heartbreak aplenty in this, one of Shakespeare’s most effervescent comedies! The King of Navarre and his followers vow to devote themselves to the celibate life of scholarship for three years. Their counterparts, the Princess of France and her attendant ladies, are refused entry to the city when they arrive, so they decide to trick the men into breaking their vows. Each man in his turn falls prey to the charms of the ladies—but their happy ending comes with a twist!
