9th Annual John R. Hamilton Mock Trial: "Love’s Labour’s Lost"

This year characters in William Shakespeare’s comedy "Love’s Labour’s Lost" will be put on trial. The Margeson Theater will transform into an interactive courtroom as actors from both shows improv their way through the trial amidst a panel of celebrity judges.

Special Guest Judges: TBD

The event also includes an opportunity to mingle with leading members of Central Florida’s legal, business, and artistic communities in a pre-show VIP cocktail hour. Starting at 6:00 p.m., all VIP ticket holders are invited to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages.

Since 2009, Orlando Shakes has hosted mock trials that explore contemporary legal thought using classic plays as their template. Past mock trials have put Mother Nature on trial for the havoc she’s wrought on the characters in Shakespeare’s "The Tempest" and "Pericles," considered whether Shakespeare’s "Hamlet" was indeed insane when he killed Polonius, and addressed a contentious Darcy v. Wickham defamation lawsuit based on Jane Austen’s "Pride and Prejudice."

Tuesday, March 14, 2017
VIP Reception at 6 p.m.
Trial starts at 7 p.m.
