    Love's Labour's Lost

    Read the Offoffoff review

    Take four young women. They are rich. They are powerful. They are friends. Now add the realization that they are throwing their lives away on parties, men, and good times. The pendulum swings. One of them suggests a vow — no more excess and no more men; just hard study and three years of contemplation. They all take the vow and swear to save each other from backsliding Now add four attractive men sent to the women on a serious business matter and the strains begin to tell! A modern tale, set in southern France in 2003, yet written 400 years ago. The male roles have been "rewritten" as female roles, and vice versa, to make this version of Shakespeare's "Love's Labour's Lost" a story of joy, friendship, sex and love in the 21st century. Think Shakespeare meets Sex and the City!
