Shakespeare in Love
Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall
Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard
Music by Paddy Cunneen
Young playwright Will Shakespeare is stuck. He is overdue in finishing his latest play - a half-baked mess of a comedy called Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter. He finds his muse in Viola de Lesseps, who is driven to do anything - even disguise herself as a man - to fulfill her dream of performing onstage, where no women are permitted.
Surrounded by familiar players, including Queen Elizabeth herself, backstage antics collide with on stage dramas. Will and Viola's passionate, forbidden love affair goes on to inspire Shakespeare's masterpiece - the most romantic tragedy ever written.
