adapt: Lee Hall from Marc Norman, Tom Stoppard; dir: Jen Wineman.
Based on the Academy AwardÂ®-winning screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, Shakespeare in Love has been adapted for the stage by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot). Promising young playwright Will Shakespeare is tormented by writer's block until he finds his muse in the form of passionate noblewoman, Viola De Lesseps. Their forbidden love draws many others, including Queen Elizabeth, into the drama and inspires Will to write the greatest love story of all time, Romeo and Juliet.
This sweeping romantic comedy will transport you back to Shakespeare's London, teeming with vibrant colours, characters, music and life. Oh, and there's a bit with a dog!
