Love's Labour's Lost

Heart on a love letter

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Zoe Saba

Join us for Shakespeare's comedic gem celebrating young romance. The King of Navarre and his lords have just pledged to foreswear all women and devote themselves to scholarship, when the Princess of France and her friends appear on the scene. It does not take long before the men are hopelessly distracted by their romantic yearnings and have to choose between their pride and finding true love.

"Studying at the CSUB Theatre Department allowed me to experiment with projects and roles that shaped the actor I am today. They gave me space and tools to create art —regardless of size and scope — always encouraging creativity, spontaneity and hard work. I was lucky to have what I did in the theatre program at CSUB and continually draw on my time there for inspiration."

—Jeff Lepine, Artistic Director of The Peoples Improv Theater, NYC

"CSUB Theatre cultivates artists as they take responsibility for and initiative in their craft. It offers support and countless possibilities for students who are committed to growth."

—Miguel Torres, CSU Fullerton MFA Program
