Shakespeare Unbard Episode 08. No plot, no villains, no happy ending? No problem. It's Love's Labours Lost.

Love's Labour's Lost is a play with no plot, no villains, and no happy ending - and yet the play has such a charming premise that Joel Fishbane is enchanted everytime the play crosses his path. Also: a one minute summary and both the 2000 film and 2013 musical are discussed.
