The King of Navarre and three noblemen take an oath to devote their lives to scholarship for three years--without the company of women. When the Princess of France and three ladies-in-waiting arrive, passion and puns abound. Will the oath hold? Or will the men succumb to the game of love? In this screwball romantic comedy, Shakespeare takes wordplay and wit to dizzying heights. Presented in repertory with The Tempest.
