Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall, Shakespeare In Love is based on the 1998 Oscar winning film of the same title, written by Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman.
The deadline for young Will Shakespeare’s new play is fast approaching but he has writers block and is in desperate need of inspiration until he finds his muse – Viola. This beautiful young woman is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including breaking the law) to appear in his next play. Against a bustling background of mistaken identity, ruthless scheming and backstage theatrics, Will’s love for Viola quickly blossoms and inspires him to write his greatest masterpiece.
