Shakespeare in Love

10 October 2017 to 25 November 2017

shakespeare in loveAdapted 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.

    “Love denied blights the soul we owe to God”

    I need to see this play – it’s one of my favorite movies. The love story between her and William Shakespeare is truly a memorable one.

  11. I listen to Cape Talk’s John Maytham every day. Usually such serious political stuff, so as a pleasant change, I would love to see him acting as “Fennyman”.

  12. Hi, On the informaton about Shakespeare in love it claims that the performances continue to 25 November.
    But, on Computicket it is only possible to book until 19 November. Since I only arrive on 24 November and since I would love to see the performance, pleaase clarify this. What is correct?

    Kind regards,
    Pia

  13. My husband is refusing to take me if I was to win tickets he would have accompany me or else I could quickly find somebody else. Ha ha.

  14. I am unfortunately having ‘love troubles’ ….oh dear oh dear ……….. would be interesting to see if Shakespeare and shed any light on the problem

  15. MY LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH SHAKESPEARE’S TWISTS AND TURNS PLAYING WITH MY EMOTIONS, I THANK YOU TO EXPERIENCE! MUST SEE!!
