Love's Labour's Lost is Shakespeare at Traquairâ€™s main stage production for 2019 and will be directed by Tim Wilcock. The play sees self-denial in fashion at the court of Navarre where the young king and three of his courtiers forswear all pleasures in favour of serious study. But when the dazzling Princess of France and her entourage arrive, inconvenient promises are quickly ditched in favour of some ham-fisted wooing. It’s a boisterous send-up of all those who confuse fantasy with reality and Shakespeare displays just about every weapon in the playwright’s arsenal, from excruciating cross-purposes and impersonations to drunkenness and bust-ups. A feast of language, replete with puns, rhymes and grotesque coinages, this is being staged as a high-energy, tightly choreographed piece of theatre.
Please note that this is an outdoor promenade performance in the grounds of Traquair House. The performance will take place whatever the weather, so come prepared with suitable clothing and footwear. Scenes will move around the grounds on paths and grass, if you have any mobility issues please email us. The play will begin at 7.30 promptly, so make sure you have time to park your car and walk to the start of the play.
