Shakespeare in Love


Shakespeare in Love
Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman & Tom Stoppard
Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall

A Sydney premiere

“Queen Elizabeth: I know something of a woman in a man’s profession. Yes, by God, I do know about that.”

A boisterous romantic comedy set in the world of the theatre.

Young Will Shakespeare has a bad case of writer’s block and desperately needs a muse.

His new comedy, 'Romeo and Ethel the Pirate’s Daughter', isn’t turning out how he’d hoped and he’s up against a tight deadline to deliver his next masterpiece.

That is until he meets Viola de Lesseps, and a real-life romance starts to take hold. But Viola has a secret and this new play isn’t shaping up to be the light-hearted comedy Queen Bess demanded.

From the pen of Lee Hall ('Billy Elliot') comes this scintillating stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, brim full of passion, love and laughter.

“Celebrates the way magic and mystery are born out of chaos and confusion.” The Guardian
