South Coast Repertory "Shakespeare in Love"

Shakespeare in Love

based on the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard

adapted for the stage by Lee Hall

music by Paddy Cunneen

directed by Marc Masterson

Young Will Shakespeare is desperate. He has writer’s block and owes two demanding producers a new comedy—a half-baked mess titled Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter. Enter his inspiration: Viola. Smart, beautiful and Will’s greatest admirer, she will stop at nothing—including breaking the law—to be in his play. As their love blossoms, so does his greatest masterpiece. Mistaken identities, ruthless scheming, and backstage theatrics make this romantic feast “a joyous celebration of theatre” (Daily Telegraph).
