About the Show

Love’s Labour’s Lost is one of Shakespeare’s early comedies and it is a hurricane of wit in which the Bard seems to be seeking the limits of his verbal dexterity. Cupid floats above the entire play and the effect of his blind shots offer brilliant insight into the power of love. Witty, charming, bittersweet and at times hilarious, LLL is too often overlooked in Shakespeare’s canon. It is a feast of language and a delightfully romantic comedy.

RECOMMENDED AUDIENCE AGE

We trust our audiences to make decisions about attending our plays, but we recommend ages 12 and up for this production.

About the Show

From Keith:

I discovered EURYDICE when I was teaching a class on playwriting and we got to the section on SETTINGS.  One of the setting examples was the string room in the play.  I told myself, “I have to read this.”  I had literally just read it when Hallie said she wanted to direct it.  I told her I’d love to co-direct it, and she very generously said, “Let’s do it.”  

I especially love this retelling of the story of Orpheus and Eurydice because it focuses on Eurydice’s part of the myth. We get to see her perspective and we understand why this is such a cautionary tale for all people who are in danger of losing everything and realizing too late what they’ve lost, and what they have to give up to get it back.

From Hallie:

This is a show about loss. And good gracious, haven’t we all lost a lot in the last few years?  It is also a show about memory and the choices we make around it.  Eurydice–and all of us—are faced with decisions day-to-day about how much we choose to remember and what we choose consciously, or otherwise, to set aside because the pain is simply too great. I’ve been in love with Sarah Ruhl’s deliciously strange and beautiful retelling of Eurydice since the first time I read it back in college. And what seems like a lifetime ago now— I had the privilege of playing the titular role in a production directed by Kathi E.B. Ellis at the Alley Theater. Both the director and the theatre that put on that show are gone now, and much like our protagonist, I am left with only fragments of that experience, though at the time those people and that place filled every corner of my consciousness. Now, in my new role as full-time caregiver to both of my aging parents, I am honored to have the chance to explore this infinitely layered text through a different lens, and to discover it all over again alongside our brilliant CTC students and my delightful partner-in-art, Keith McGill.  I hope the show mystifies and touches you as much as it does me, and that it will inspire conversation and connection with your loved ones for some time to come.

About the Show

From Jennifer:

It has always been a passion of mine to put unheard voices on the stage to tell their stories. Storytelling has the power to heal. While we are slowly healing from this global pandemic it has become very clear that we are also in a pandemic of ‘othering’ and have been for some time. We seem to be focusing on our differences rather than identifying with what is similar. We all have basic human needs: food, shelter, safety, love, belonging. If I get to know your story and relate to your struggles it is harder for me to ‘other’ you. This courageous group of young people has enthusiastically jumped into this alternative telling of an ancient story. Thank you all for your open hearts and minds!

RECOMMENDED AUDIENCE AGE

We trust our audiences to make decisions about attending our plays, but we recommend ages and 12 and up for this production.
