Director's Notes

LLL is one of Shakespeare's earliest plays. The actual composition date is in dispute (probably 1593 or 1594) but it did receive a Quarto printing in 1598.

Regardless of its composition date, the play remains not only a feast of language, but a wonderful satire of fashions, manners, learning, and the game of love. As always, Shakespeare's talent provides a rich undercurrent that examines friendship, trust, fidelity, and the depth of emotion.

While setting this production in the Regency era is not historically accurate (there was no King or Princess of France in 1808!), the manners, morals, and fashions of that time lend themselves well to the content and style of the text.

This is a tale of love - love sought, won, lost and won again - all high romance - the perfect entertainment for a summer evening under the stars.

Thank you for ten wonderful years.

- Kim McCann, Director
