The Hot Ticket: Shakespeare In Love

Tantalising romance, suspense and quick-witted comedy, the new stage adaptation of Shakespeare in Love at London’s Noël Coward Theatre has got it all.

Fifteen years since the film took home a total of seven Oscars – including Best Actress, resulting in that acceptance speech by Gwyneth Paltrow – and on the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, this new production sees a sparkling cast combine with seriously-clever staging and a sense of fun.

The play, adapted by Lee Hall and overseen by the original screenplay writers, tells the story of ‘Will’ Shakespeare, a young playwright tormented by writers’ block until he finds his muse in Viola De Lesseps.

A tale of forbidden love peppered with comic characters, music and a dog, Shakespeare in Love is not to be missed.

Shakespeare in Love runs until Saturday 25thOctober at Noël Coward Theatre, London. Book tickets online at or by calling the box office on 0844 482 5141.
