RSC Live: Love's Labour's Won (12A)

Shakespeare's comic romance plays out amidst the high spirits of a post-war house party in autumn 1918. As memories of the trenches give way to a life of parties and masked balls, Claudio and Hero fall in love, while Benedick and Beatrice reignite their own altogether more combative courtship. Christopher Luscombe directs the second of Shakespeare's matching pair of comedies. Better known as Much Ado About Nothing, his play is performed under the title Love's Labour's Won, a name possibly given to it during Shakespeare's lifetime.
