A charming evocation of another time and place, travel to Elizabethan England and witness the early career of one William Shakespeare.

Adapted from the Oscar-winning film by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, Morpheus Theatre’s production of Shakespeare in Love is sure to delight as only the art of Shakespeare can.

Experiencing a stubborn case of writer’s block while producers demand pages—Shakespeare forces himself to work, holding auditions for a play not yet written. When he meets Viola de Lesseps, disguised as male actor Thomas Kent, Shakespeare’s world is turned upside down and Romeo and Juliet becomes a reality.

Shakespeare in Love runs February 1 to 9, 2019 at the Shed Theatre, Pumphouse Theatre (2140 Pumphouse Ave. SW).
