Based on the 1998 Academy Award Winning film it is a love story about struggling young playwright Will Shakespeare and a feisty, free-thinking young noblewoman who helps him overcome his writer's block and becomes his muse. And it's a love letter to the stage itself – bursting with humour, wonderful characters and theatrical allusions.

Viola de Lesseps is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing – including breaking the law and dressing as a boy actor – 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, inspiring him to write his greatest romantic masterpiece, Romeo and Juliet.

Funny and moving in equal measures, this stage version of Shakespeare in Love was acclaimed as "riotously enjoyable" and a show that "makes you feel grateful to be alive" when it premiered in London in 2014.
