The OSC makes a welcome return to Wadham gardens with Shakespeare’s Love's Labour's Lost, their acclaimed 2016 sell-out hit, directed by Nichoas Green with original music by Nick Lloyd Webber.

Young King Ferdinand is feeling a tad jaded. After being swept along by the hedonism of a childhood lived in the 1960s and now stumbling into 1970’s manhood he has decided that he and his wastrel cohorts may have had too much of a good thing…
So one morning-after-the-night-before he decrees  - Enough! Time to set aside such wasteful antics. Time for them to get serious, to turn to a scholarly and chaste life, to forswear all non-academic pleasure, and of course to forswear women…
BUT how do we think their resolve will fare when a certain young Princess, with her own three feisty companions turns up for an audience with the King…
Watch with glee as four young men and some of Shakespeare’s most colourful comic characters trip over themselves not to mention their words, to find out whether four weary young women love them.
Or love them not…
