    Will Shakespeare has got writer’s block. Looking for a muse to help him complete his new play, Romeo and Ethel the Pirate's Daughter, he chances upon the lovely and engaged to be married, Viola de Lesseps.

    At the same time, Philip Henslowe, owner of the Rose Playhouse is desperate for a new show to get his feet out of the fire and pay off some nagging debts. Will hasn’t finished the play and the actors are on tour. But that won’t stop them - after hilarious auditions, a rag-tag bunch of actors come together, with mysterious new and talented thespian, Thomas Kent.

    Will the show go on? Will Viola and Will live happily ever after? Who knows? It’s a mystery!

    Based on the Oscar-award winning film starring Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow. Written by Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman and adapted for the stage by Lee Hall.

    This amateur production of Shakespeare In Love is presented by an arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.
