Shakespeare's romantic comedy performed by Off the Ground Theatre. A superb way to spend a summer's evening in the beautiful surroundings of Gawthorpe Hall. Please bring your own picnic and seating.

A comedy about love in all its forms, this is Shakespeare's most poetic and colourful play by some distance. The King of Navarre and his friends swear an oath, to study, to discipline, and to keep away from all women and temptations of love, for three years. Just as they do so, the Princess of France arrives with her ladies-in-waiting. Forced to camp outside the Kingdom because of the King's new oath and laws, the ladies toy with the men, who quickly become enamoured with their French counterparts. Games and trickery abound as the men try to win the love of the women, learning a lot about love and themselves, before an unexpected ending...
