New production of ‘Shakespeare in Love’ to open at Theatre Royal Bath this October, ahead of UK tour!

By special arrangement with Disney Theatrical Group and Sonia Friedman Productions, co-producers Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Theatre Royal Bath Productions have today announced that a new production of the critically acclaimed stage adaptation of ‘Shakespeare in Love‘ – based on the Oscar-winning film by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, and adapted for the stage by Lee Hall, with music by Paddy Cunneen – will open at Theatre Royal Bath from 4 to 13 October 2018, ahead of a nationwide tour.

The new stage production is directed by Philip Breen.

Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block… the deadline for his new play is fast approaching; he’s struggling to finish the first line of a sonnet and he’s in dire need of inspiration. Then he meets the beguiling Viola de Lesseps, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant. Viola is prepared to do anything – including risking the regal disapproval of Queen Elizabeth I – to fulfil her illicit dream of performing on the London stage and pursuing a passionate affair with the greatest playwright of the age.
