SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE
Screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard
Adapted by the stage by Lee Hall
Directed by Joe York


Synopsis:
Penniless and indebted to two-demanding producers, struggling young playwright, William Shakespeare is tormented by writer's block, until he meets the beautiful Viola de Lesseps, daughter of a wealthy merchant, whose fiery passion for poetry leaves her secretly longing to be an actor. Viola quickly becomes the playwright’s muse, while she disguises herself as a man to become a player. Both are despondent when they learn that Viola’s father has promised her to the stuffy Lord Wessex in order to gain a title for their family. Under veil of secrecy, Will and Viola’s passionate love affair becomes the basis of the very play he is writing – Romeo and Juliet. With opening night – and the wedding day – fast approaching, the plots race toward a parallel conclusion. Will it all work out in the end or are the two star-crossed lovers destined for tragedy?
