"I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all"

Promising young playwright Will Shakespeare has writer's block

The deadline for his new play "Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter" is fast approaching and he's in desperate need of inspiration

That is, until he chances upon his muse the beautiful Lady Viola

This 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 and also draws many other notables into the drama including Queen Elizabeth I

And then inspires young Will to write the greatest love story of all time - Romeo and Juliet

Adapted for the Stage by Lee Hall from the Oscar-winning screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard
