Shakespeare's "Love's Labor's Lost" features 'battle of the sexes' with a group of men trying to get a group of women to fall for them.

"It's one of Shakespeare's earlier plays that he wrote," Addison Sim says, "and one of the fun things about our production is that we cut it down to around 94 minutes."

Sim plays Berowne in the production. He describes his character as a 'snarky, words I can't say on air,' but loveable kind of character. He says watching the production is like watching a sitcom of sorts. 

Berowne's counter-part, Rosaline, is played by UMD student Leah Walk. She says the play is a lot of fun with plenty of comedic moments mixed in with serious scenes.

It runs Feb. 7-10 and 13-16 at Marshall Performing Arts Center located on Campus. Click here for showtimes and to buy tickets.
