Shakespeare in Love
Melbourne Theatre Company presents
Shakespeare in Love

22 Aug 2019 to 31 Aug 2019


A DELIGHTFULLY CLEVER ROMCOM THAT BRINGS THE OSCAR-WINNING FILM TO STAGE.

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.

With acclaimed director Simon Phillips (Muriel’s Wedding the Musical) at the helm, this unique theatrical event guarantees a rollicking night of romance, backstage fun and lavish musical accompaniment.

“A joyous celebration of the possibilities of theatre itself.” Daily Telegraph

“ Makes you grateful to be alive.” The Independent
