In “Love’s Labor’s Lost,” King Ferdinand of Navarre has convinced his lords to swear an oath to scholarship, and in the process, forego the company of women for three years. The Princess of France, along with her ladies, soon arrives at Ferdinand’s court on a political visit, only to be barred admittance and required to make camp outside of the court. Naturally, all of the Lords (and the King himself) immediately begin to struggle with their oaths as they fall in love with the Princess and her ladies.
