Shakespeare in Love

Based on the screenplay by Mark Norman & Tom Stoppard
Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall | Music by Paddy Cunneen

June 12 – September 18 · BMO Mainstage

Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block. The deadline for his new play is looming and he’s in desperate need of inspiration. And then he finds his muse – Viola. She’s Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including breaking the law) to appear in his next play. Will’s love for Viola quickly blossoms but their road to romance runs into plenty of complications, from nefarious schemers to overheated backstage theatrics. And then there’s the dog…

Directed by Citadel Theatre Artistic Director Daryl Cloran, returning to Bard after directing our 2018 Season’s record-breaking Beatles-music-filled As You Like It.

This production was originally conceived at the Citadel Theatre, Edmonton.
