With Love's Labour's Lost, Richard II, Henry IV Parts I and II, Ned and Jack, and The Importance of Being Earnest, Artistic Director Robin Phillips launches for Stratford ’79 a parade of poetic souls struggling for expression, determined apprentices rehearsing painfully for the responsibilities of life or just role-playing for its own gleeful sake.
