Love’s Labour’s Lost and Love’s Labour’s Won (usually known as Much Ado About Nothing) from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

As part of a season marking the centenary of the First World War, Christopher Luscombe returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company to direct a single company of actors in a fresh pairing of two of Shakespeare’s most sparkling comedies, set in a splendid country house just before and just after the war.

Returning to the RSC are Edward Bennett and Michelle Terry, who will play the lovers in both productions.

In Love’s Labour’s Lost, the mischievous Rosaline tests Berowne’s high-minded resolve in the summer of 1914. At the end of the play the merriment is curtailed as the lovers agree to submit to a period apart, unaware the world around them is about to be transformed by a war to end all wars.

Love’s Labour’s Won begins four years later in the autumn of 1918 with a world-weary Benedick and Claudio returning from the trenches to a post-war house party, where Claudio falls in love with Hero and Benedick reignites his altogether more combative courtship with Beatrice. Youthful passions run riot before peace ultimately breaks out.
