            "Love's Labours Lost," a "vibrant comedy of romance, requited and otherwise," will be performed, free, at seven Metropolitan Library System locations in March and April.   Reduxion Theatre has placed the drama in twentieth century Spain, with absurdist comedy, and period music. This is a briefer, but true to the original, version of the full length play.
“It’s Shakespeare for everybody,” said MLS Director of Outreach Services Dana Morrow in a press release.  “The play is about the King of Navarre who, with three of his friends, decides to devote three years to study and to ignore all women during that time.  You can imagine how long that lasts.  It is full of puns and comical wordplay, and was first performed in 1597 for Queen Elizabeth I.  She liked it.  So will you.”
