REVIEW: Love’s Labour’s Won, Royal Shakespeare Theatre ✭✭✭✭

The RSC production of Love's Labour's Won at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre

Christopher Luscombe’s very funny version of the Beatrice/Benedick show complete with magnificent, period set (Simon Highlett), some fabulous costumes, Nigel Hess’ delightful music and Jenny Arnold’s joyful movement. Setting the play in the post-World War 1 period works nicely; the sense of changing times is entirely appropriate. It’s a gentle but frisky time and you can almost hear the approach of the flappers.
