This play is a light romp set in a romanticized version of the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Shakespeare’s original play is about four young men (one of them a king) who withdraw from the world for three years, taking an oath that they will have nothing to do with women. The King of Navarre soon learns, however, that the Princess of France and her ladies are about to arrive. Eventually, everyone falls in love, causing the men to abandon their oaths. Silliness, humor and disguises ensue! SDSU’s production will reference gender and racial politics of the counterculture and will include a soundtrack inspired by Motown, soul, folk, and psychedelic rock.
