The legal event of the year, The Lawyer Show is Nightwood Theatre’s annual fundraiser. This important event raises vital funds that go towards enhancing Nightwood’s productions and training programs. Each season Nightwood auditions and casts over 30 local lawyers and legal professionals and works with them for over 2 months rehearsing lines, dissecting text, choreographing dance sequences, blocking moves – all with the goal of having fun, entertaining our audiences and raising money!

Shakespeare’s zany masterpiece of wit Love’s Labour’s Lost is the story of King Ferdinand and his three gentlemen who have sworn off women for three years of study, until the Princess and her three ladies come to the court… Will their vow be forsworn or will love overcome?
