by William Shakespeare

The King of Navarre and his three academic-minded friends, for the sake of their studies, vow to abstain from food, sleep and, of course, women for three years. No sooner have they finalized their agreement than the kingdom is visited by the beautiful princess of France and her three tempting ladies. Hormones may be stronger than their wills. The king, also smitten, finds himself reigning over, but not successfully reining in, the court’s amorous men who take to writing love letters that of course are misdelivered. After disguising themselves as men from Moscow and making complete fools of themselves, the King and his friends realize that they truly love the ladies. Surrounding this plot is another one of a wandering Spaniard in search of love; a country maid pursued by a silly clown and confused academics. However, this merry comedy ends with a twist making it one of Shakespeare’s most memorable romantic comedies.
