A Valentine's Affair 2020
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Bridget Doxtater
Alas poor King that labors so in vain,
For her that so delighteth in thy pain:
Be ruled by me, and seek some other love,
Whose yielding heart may yield thee more relief.
Surrender to temptation and seek comfort from the cold in the embrace of the classics.
