King Ferdinand of Navarre’s “no fun” edict includes scholarly endeavors, quiet contemplation and complete commitment to chastity for three entire years. His closest courtiers reluctantly sign on. But this is a comedy and it doesn’t take long for everyone to figure out that the whole thing is a bad idea and rules are meant to be broken—especially when the French Princess and her beautiful entourage arrive on the scene. The young men’s studies soon give way to secret letters and amorous vows as the women set out to teach the men a thing or two about love. The puns fly and the playwright’s wordplay take flight in this witty satire about young love with a surprising conclusion where real-life lessons are suddenly revealed. Former Artistic Director of Canada’s Stratford Festival Marti Maraden returns to Chicago Shakespeare to stage this charming comedy, following her celebrated productions of Much Ado About Nothing and Othello.
