LOVE'S LABOURS LOST
Our show begins with our Noble
Men vowing to study together three long years, eating but one meal
per day, and completely
forsaking the presence of women.
These vows are quickly made difficult
to follow, due to the arrival of three attractive French ladies, who
by their loyal man-in-waiting, Mercade.
Meanwhile, there is a guest from
Spain, Armado, who
is a bit full of himself...
... Which is just fine with Costard, as
always better with someone around who's just *asking* for ridicule.
Now, all of our men, despite their vows,
becoming quite interested in these French ladies.
Though no one wants to admit that they're
breaking their vows, and they have to find sneakier ways to display their affections...
One of these ways is to dress up as Muskovites!
The ladies aren't about to be tricked with
costumes, and trade favors in order to confuse the 'disguised' nobles.
Jaquenetta is not ashamed to take part in
fun with Armado.
Costard and Jaquenetta lay down some pretty
amazing tricks on the poor Spanish traveler.
But, after all the fun, the ending is...
Waitaminit! we're not going to tell you the ending! Sheesh.
