SYNOPSIS OVERVIEW

“Love is familiar. Love is a devil.”

The King and three friends take an oath dedicating themselves to a life of study, avoiding the company of women for three years. No sooner have they made their vow the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, presenting the men with a severe test of their high-minded resolve.

Widely believed to be the prequel to Much Ado about Nothing, this early Shakespeare promises luscious costumes and a few surprises, including an original music collaboration with Kent arts festival, Jam on the Marsh.

Four boys and four girls in a game of love – this is Shakespeare does Bridgerton. If you loved the Netflix series, then this show is perfect for you!
