Sport For Jove Theatre Returns For Its 7th Summer Season
Don't miss this fantastic lineup.
In December and January, Sport For Jove Theatre Company proudly presents its acclaimed Outdoor Summer Season returning for its 7th season with a double bill of moonlit romance, of men behaving badly and women winning the day, with a swift kick up the backside for a culture that is still discussing the rights and rules of marriage equality centuries after our greatest poets shot Cupid’s arrows right back at him.
These are two of the world’s perfect comedies, The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde and Shakespeare's only entirely original comedy, Love’s Labour’s Lost, the play most closely tied to his staggering series of Sonnets, to this day the most popular love poetry ever written. Sport For Jove, the company that salvaged the forgotten All’s Well That Ends Well to such acclaim, brings this unknown gem to the stage in a full Elizabethan setting, fusing the sonnets and the play into a passionate study of the act of artistic creation. Summer Season 7 will give these wonderful plays a vigorous outdoor life in the glorious surrounds of Bella Vista Farm in Baulkham Hills and the Everglades Gardens in Leura.
Also playing as a bonus curtain raiser to Love’s Labour’s Lost throughout the festival season is the brilliant short one-act play Shakespearealism, by acclaimed Australian actor, writer and film director Josh Lawson, directed by Lizzie Schebesta.
