The performance will be held at the Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia!
The Rustic Mechanicals, West Virginia’s only professional Shakespeare troupe, bring their 2022 Sweet Smoke of Rhetoric Tour of William Shakespeare’s most intelligent romantic comedy, LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST to the Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia on Sunday, July 10 at 4p.

$17 in advance and $23 at the door.
When the King of Navarre and his three courtiers forswear all pleasure – particularly of the female variety – in favour of a life of study, the arrival of the Princess of France and her ladies plays havoc with their intentions. Using every kind of verbal gymnastics to poke fun, Love’s Labour’s Lost proves to be Shakespeare’s most intellectual comedy. The Rustic Mechanicals production is filled with music, romance, charm, and a healthy dose of laugh-out-loud hilarity.
Directed by Jim Warren, alongside Intimacy Director Jessica Morgan with Technical Direction by David Byard, Costume Design by Jason A Young, Hair & Make-Up Design by Samantha Huffman, Production Management by Haley Wilson, and Dramaturgy by John Shirley; the Mechanicals featured in this production include newcomers Erica Cottrill, M. Eric Jett, Jackson Johnson, Jordan Kennedy Rea, Ben Long, Kyra McKillip, Kyia McGill, Tim Walker and troupe veterans Derek Hess, Samantha Huffman, Jason A Young, and Sarah Young.
