Images have been released of the brand new stage adaptation of Oscar-winning movie Shakespeare in Love.

Now in previews at the Noel Coward Theatre, this much-anticipated new romantic comedy has been adapted by Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall based on the movie’s Academy Award-winning screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard.

Directed by the Cheek by Jowl creative team of director Declan Donellan and designer Nick Ormerod, the show features over 30 actors and musicians and brings to life this atmospheric romantic comedy set within Elizabethan England.

A talented cast includes Da Vinci’s Demons star Tom Bateman as Shakespeare, Lucy Briggs-Owen as Viola De Lesseps, Anna Carteret as Queen Elizabeth and Paul Chahidi as Henslowe.
