Directed by Declan Donnellan with design by Nick Ormerod, Shakespeare in Love is based on the original Oscar winning screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard and has been been adapted to the stage by Lee Hall (Billy Elliot).

Charles Spenser in the Telegraph said that Lee Hall’s “delightful stage adaptation the piece seems to have found its true home. It’s funny, often genuinely moving and generates a glow you could warm your hands by. You can feel the audience getting behind the piece from the start, and by the end this inventive and touching comedy seems like a joyous celebration of the possibilities of theatre itself.”
