Setting and design

The action in these productions of Love's Labour's Lost and Love's Labour's Won (Much Ado About Nothing) took place either side of World War One and both shows featured the same company of actors.

The productions also shared the same set based on Charlecote Park, the National Trust stately home near Stratford-upon-Avon.

Love's Labour's Won was broadcast live into cinemas worldwide in Spring 2015 and also streamed into schools.

Here we give you glimpses behind the scenes of staging a play at the RSC. As well as previously unseen photos of the production in process, you can view video interviews with the director and designer and watch clips from the show itself.
