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, is less than inspired and he’s running out of time to deliver his next masterpiece.
That is, until he meets Viola, and a real-life Romeo and Juliet story starts to take hold. But Viola has a secret, and this damned Romeo play is turning out to be nothing like the comedy the Queen demanded.
Shakespeare in Love won seven Oscars in 1998 when Gwyneth Paltrow and Joseph Fiennes stole our hearts on screen. Now, Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman’s Academy Award-winning script has been transformed by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot) into a side-splitting stage comedy with a stirring love story at its heart.
In a coup for Melbourne audiences, this Australian Premiere production from acclaimed director Simon Phillips (Muriel's Wedding the Musical) has been specially licensed by Disney Theatrical Productions. Don’t miss this unique theatrical event, which guarantees a rollicking night of romance and backstage fun, with lavish musical accompaniment.
