Summer Shakespeare returns to Rexville with ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’
July 20, 2022
Go see “Love’s Labour’s Lost” at the Rexville Blackrock Amphitheatre and appreciate the joy and enthusiasm of community actors again performing live and outside after the two year shutdown imposed by the coronavirus pandemic.
The play opens at mob boss Ferdinand’s speakeasy, Navarre, in this production set in 1929 during prohibition. Shakespeare placed it in the kingdom of Navarre among royalty. But the play’s the thing and while 425 year old language is hard to follow, remember comedy is for laughs, not to make sense. Make the effort to follow it and you will laugh a lot.
