SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE

Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard and adapted for the stage by Lee Hall, with music by Paddy Cunneen. Winning no less than seven Academy Awards, including best screenplay, the 1998 film of Shakespeare in Love, starring Judy Dench, Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow, became and instant classic. Adapted by Lee Hall for a triumphant West End run, this epic Elizabethan extravaganza, witty, funny, and a beautiful homage to love, art and theatre itself.

Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block… the deadline for his new play – a comedy called Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter – is fast approaching; he’s struggling to finish the first line of a sonnet and he’s in dire need of inspiration. Then he meets the beguiling Viola de Lesseps, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant. Viola is prepared to do anything – including risking the regal disapproval of Queen Elizabeth I – to fulfil her illicit dream of performing on the London stage and pursuing a passionate affair with the greatest playwright of the age.
