Shakespeare Festival St. Louis
provides a great way to experience Shakespeare in the city. Each
summer, the festival organizes free performances of a popular
Shakespeare play in Forest Park.
2019’s play is Love’s Labors Lost.
Belonging to Shakespeare’s “lyrical” period, which also included
Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the play tells the
story of the Princess of France and her ladies who arrive on a
diplomatic mission to Navarre only to be met by a young king and his
lords who have taken a vow not to see women. Affairs of state give
way to affairs of the heart as Shakespeare reveals with great humor
and compassion the way our culture sometimes doesn’t fully prepare
us for the realities of love and intimacy. A feast of language and
theatrical virtuosity, Love’s Labors Lost shimmers with all the
passion and promise of a first kiss..
