Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block. The deadline for his new play – a comedy called Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter – is fast approaching; he’s struggling and in dire need of inspiration.

Then he meets the beguiling Viola de Lesseps, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant. Viola is prepared to do anything – including risking the disapproval of Queen Elizabeth I – to fulfil her illicit dream of performing on the London stage and pursuing a passionate affair with the greatest playwright of the age.

Winning seven Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay, the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love, starring Judi Dench, Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow, became an instant classic. Adapted by Lee Hall for a triumphant West End run, this epic Elizabethan extravaganza is exuberant, witty, funny and a beautiful homage to love, art, and theatre itself.

Adapted by Lee Hall for a triumphant West End run and directed by Phillip Breen (The Hypocrite, The Merry Wives of Windsor RSC) this epic Elizabethan extravaganza is exuberant, witty, funny and a beautiful homage to love, art, and theatre itself.
