Love’s Labour’s Lost Part I

It’s Wednesday and that means a new episode for you, Offended Listener!

Today we begin with Part I of our series on Love’s Labour’s Lost.  This is Dani’s favorite play penned by her man Will, but Mike found it to be mediocre with a good mix of strong parts and a few really weak parts. In this episode, we talk about the show’s background!  We drop a teaser about a lost Shakespearean play! We digress into some Elizabethan politics!  Finally, we cover the play’s opening scene. There is a lot to talk about with this one so stick with us.

As we mentioned in the podcast, there are two great versions of this play available on DVD. We used Shakespeare’s Globe’s production which you can find here at Amazon. If you’re in the mood for a creative re-mix, you can opt to view the Kenneth Branagh version. Both films are available via Netflix.

Internet Shakespeare Editions has the first folio text of Love’s Labour’s Lost here.
