Rude Mechanicals present Love’s Labour’s Lost at the Greenbelt Arts Center, Jan 31-Feb 9

The Rude Mechanicals present
Love’s Labour’s Lost
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Liana Olear

January 31 – February 9, 2020

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost is a comedy best known for its witty wordplay – the clever characters speak in puns, and less clever ones in malapropisms. The Rude Mechanicals’ production uses a modern setting, with cell phones, selfies and social media, to showcase Shakespeare’s timeless themes. But, spoiler – the ending is in the play’s name, and if ever you were annoyed at Romeo and Juliet’s brief acquaintance (coming soon!) being touted as love for the ages, perhaps you’ll appreciate an exploration of a much more sensible alternative.
