Shakespeare in Love

A stage adaptation of the 1998 Academy Award-winning film

In 1593 London, Will Shakespeare has writer’s block. Low on funds and out of ideas, the young playwright finds his muse in Viola de Lesseps, a wealthy merchant’s daughter with dreams of the stage. Despite England’s prohibition on female performers, Viola disguises herself as a man and wins the role of “Romeo” in Shakespeare’s upcoming comedy, Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter. As Will discovers that his talented leading man is none other than the captivating aristocrat he admired from afar, the two begin a passionate affair that becomes inspiration for a new love story: Romeo and Juliet.


Recommended for ages 13+ due to mild sexual situations and some profanity.
