Shakespeare's Lost Comedy

John Wolfson, Honorary Curator of Rare Books at Shakespeare's Globe, on a lost play.

A reference to a play called Love's Labour's Won appears in a 1598 book of literary criticism. Another reference survives from 1603 in the stocklist of a British bookseller. In spite of these notices, scholars today prefer to believe that no such play existed.
In his tenth talk at the Globe Theatre, John Wolfson summarises the evidence which suggests that such a play did exist, that it was written by William Shakespeare, and that it was intended as a sequel to Love's Labour's Lost.
He will be assisted in his talk by Globe actors.

The lecture is in Nancy W. Knowles Lecture Theatre.
