Shakespeare in Love is a period comedy about a young William Shakespeare. Young Will has writer's block and is desperately searching for a muse when he stumbles across Viola. In true Shakespearean fashion, this delightful and witty play explores Will's journey with mistaken identity, scheming, ridiculous antics and the usual blossoming love that ties it all up and leaves its audience smiling all the way home.
