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 and drama leaves her secretly longing to be an actor. Based on Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard’s Oscar-winning screenplay, Lee Hall’s stage adaptation of Shakespeare in Love is a gloriously romantic comedy of errors.
