UK Department of Theatre + Dance presents "Shakespeare in Love" by Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman adapted for the stage by Lee Hall
Directed by Stephen Wrentmore
THIS PERFORMANCE WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE GUIGNOL THEATRE LOCATED IN THE FINE ARTS BUILDING (465 ROSE STREET)
Based on the Academy Award-winning movie, this enchanting, hilarious, romantic stage play reimagines William Shakespeare's creative process – and explores his inspiration – as he writes Romeo & Juliet. Young Will Shakespeare has writer's block. The deadline for his new play is fast approaching, but he's in desperate need of inspiration. That is, until he finds his muse... the feisty, brilliant and beautiful Viola. This crafty young woman is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including breaking the law) 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.
