_I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all. _
Promising young playwright Will Shakespeare is plagued by debt and tormented by writer’s block – until he finds his muse in the form of passionate noblewoman, Viola de Lesseps. Their forbidden love draws many others into the drama, including Queen Elizabeth I, and inspires Will to write the greatest love story of all time: _Romeo and Juliet. _ Winning no less than seven Oscars, the film became an instant classic. Adapted for the stage by Lee Hall, this epic Elizabethan extravaganza is an exuberant, witty and beautiful homage to love, art and theatre itself.
Brighton Little Theatre brings this sparkling romantic romp to BOAT this summer, transporting audiences back to Shakespeare’s London, in a theatrical production that will burst with energy and everything you’d expect from the Bard: romance, comedy, drama, thrilling stage fights, music, dancing, singing and maybe a few surprises!
