Young playwright Will Shakespeare is stuck. He is overdue in finishing his latest play -- a half-baked mess of a comedy called Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate's Daughter. Then, he finds his muse in Viola de Lesseps, who is driven to do anything (even disguise herself as a man) to fulfill her dream of performing onstage, where women aren't permitted. Surrounded by familiar players, including Queen Elizabeth herself, backstage antics collide with onstage dramas. Will and Viola's passionate, forbidden love affair goes on to inspire the most romantic tragedy ever written. Based on the multiple-Oscar-winning big screen romance, the acclaimed theatrical adaptation of Shakespeare in Love makes its Chicago premiere at Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
