Love's Labour's Lost RSC

Audiences at the Theatre Royal Haymarket will be treated to a fantastic staging of Love’s Labour’s Lost this December as the classic comedy is presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company alongside Much Ado About Nothing under the direction of Christopher Luscombe. Continuing into the New Year it will be a memorable production for audiences headed to the West End over the Christmas period.

It is a great year to celebrate the work of Shakespeare. After all, 2016 marks the 400th anniversary of his death in 1616 and as fans all over the world mark the occasion there is no better way to honour the man than to witness one of his works first hand.

And it doesn’t get much better than Love’s Labour’s Lost, a story that shares many similarities with Much Ado About Nothing (so much so that some say the latter originally went by the title Love’s Labour’s Won). In it we meet the characters of Berowne (Edward Bennett – also paying Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing) and Rosaline in a setting updated from the original play as it transports the action to the era before the First World War in 1914. But the tale is still familiar, focusing the mentioned lovers as confrontation, trickery and misunderstandings lead the day.

Audiences are in for a treat with Edward Bennett portraying Berowne in the production. The actor has a long list of credits in London and has also accumulated work on the screen as well. In 2015 he appeared alongside Nicole Kidman in Photograph 51 at the Noël Coward Theatre and he has also appeared alongside James Corden in One Man, Two Guvnors at the National Theatre, plus Hay Fever at the Chichester Festival Theatre and Othello at the Donmar Warehouse, to name but a few.

If that isn’t enough to prove that he is going to bring a lot to the part at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, he has also won numerous awards in his career prior to originally taking up the role when the production(s) first appeared at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre two years ago.

He appears alongside a wealth of other performers when Love’s Labour’s Lost (alongside Much Ado About Nothing) appears at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from Monday 12th December 2016.
