This is no doubt the best production of Love's Labour's Lost I have ever seen. The acting is excellent. It's set in 1914, just before World War I. The RSC adds music---Moth sings a sonnet by Michael Drayton, they turn The Nine Worthies into a mini-operetta in the style of Gilbert & Sullivan, and at the end when they sing Berowne's sonnet to Rosaline, it's so beautiful I was in tears.
Love's Labour's Won (AKA Much Ado About Nothing) is set in 1918 after the war and with the same cast and is equally excellent.
