The Leura Shakespeare Festival

Event dates to be confirmed: January 2017

A double bill of moonlit romance, of men behaving badly and women winning the day, with a swift kick up the backside for a culture that is still discussing the rights and rules of marriage equality centuries after the greatest poets shot Cupid's arrows right back at him.
These are two of the world's perfect comedies, The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde and Shakespeare's only entirely original comedy, Love's Labour's Lost, the play most closely tied to his staggering series of Sonnets, to this day the most popular love poetry ever written. Sport For Jove, brings this unknown gem to the stage in a full Elizabethan setting, fusing the sonnets and the play into a passionate study of the act of artistic creation.
Summer Season Seven will give these wonderful plays a vigorous outdoor life in the glorious surrounds of the Everglades Garden in Leura.
