The Play of Love
201 East Capitol Street, SE Washington
The Folger Theatre takes one of those most famous romanticized Shakespearean quotes literally to bring you an evening of medieval chivalric music and poetry. If music be the food of love, play on as you immerse yourself in a different time period, complete with a dazzling array of love songs with court and country dances. These troubadours, including special guest musicians, also perform selections from one of the earliest secular French plays with music, Play of Robin and Marion. A 13th century manuscript of Piers Plowman, a narrative poem containing the first known references to the legendary Robin Hood, will be on display as well. Experience these medieval hours of romance in Washington, D.C.
