Thanks for reminding me Peter.

But I think the general point still stands.  We don't have the play, and
in the absence of any evidence that another of Shakespeare's plays was
also called 'Love's Labours Wonne' then we don't know what the play
contained.  From that point of view it occupies the same kind of
position as the Ur Hamlet, about whose contents we can only guess at.

Cheers,
John Drakakis
