Courtly love: Love’s Labour’s Lost

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

A king and three gentle­men courtiers swear to de­vote them­selves to three years of study with­out ro­man­tic dis­trac­tion. A princess and her three lady com­pan­ions throw a screw in the works, teach­ing the fel­lows that some things can’t be learned from books. Yes, it’s Shakespeare’s ef­fer­ves­cent Love’s Labour’s Lost, which the Strat­ford Fes­ti­val in Canada has filmed in an adap­ta­tion of its stage pro­duc­tion. You can catch it at The Screen (1600 St. Michael’s Drive, 505-473-6494) on Sun­day, June 18, at 11:15 a.m. and on Wed­nes­day, June 21, at 2 p.m. Tick­ets ($10-$20) can be pur­chased at www .the­screensf. — James M.
