Play Synopsis +
It’s the greatest love story (almost) never told. This wildly funny and irresistibly romantic new adaptation of the Academy Award-winning film is fresh from its critically-acclaimed debut in London’s West End. Young Will Shakespeare has writer's block — until he meets Viola. Against a bustling backdrop of mistaken identity, ruthless scheming and backstage theatrics, their forbidden romance inspires a masterpiece.
