Is razor-sharp wit a true defence against love?
It’s festival time in Hyde Park – a place for amorous intrigue, unexpected encounters, and transformations of fortune. Three women, setting their own rules, make life-defining choices – and teach the men who pursue them a lesson in the process.
In a play where Hollywood screwball comedy meets Much Ado About Nothing, James Shirley’s brilliantly funny 1632 comedy is moved to vibrant modern London, where, during one momentous day in Hyde Park, the characters’ lives will change forever.
