The play was inspired by the movie of the same name, winning seven Oscars. William Shakespeare is failing to finish a piece, which is soon to be rehearsed. His broken heart and disappointment prevents him from moving forward. However, he then meets with the beautiful actress Viola (dressed as a man playing female roles) and one of his most famous pieces, Romeo and Juliet, comes to life. The story spins around testing the new text, the love between the author and the actress, as well as the fact that in those times women were not permitted to perform in the theatre. Besides the actors, many others cause complications with the story, the directors of the theatres, censors, and Shakespeare’s colleagues, as well as Queen Elizabeth herself, who secretly attends the theatre as she is a big fan of Shakespeare...
