In this exciting adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film, a young, pre-fame Will Shakespeare is struggling with writer's block. The deadline for his next play is approaching all too quickly! Sparks fly when he meets Viola, a merchant's daughter with secret theatrical ambitions of her own. Their forbidden love affair just might give Will the inspiration he needs to write a masterpiece. Shakespeare in Love is an epic Elizabethan extravaganza filled with mistaken identities, backstage chaos and the power of love - and theatre.
