Love's Labour's Lost Promo picNavarre’s king and his loyal bookmen are sworn to three years of distraction-free scholarly solidarity: light meals, minimal rest, and absolutely *no girls allowed.* Oh, the poor king…he’s forgotten one thing: the impending arrival of the wise and winsome princess of France, who comes with an entire entourage of facile, fetching friends.
