American Theatre Company presents “Shakespeare In Love”


Aug 3, 2018 to Aug 12, 2018
08:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Struggling young playwright William Shakespeare, penniless and indebted to two demanding producers, is tormented by writer’s block until he meets the beautiful Viola de Lesseps, daughter of a wealthy merchant, whose fiery passion for poetry and drama leaves her secretly longing to be an actor. Both are despondent when they learn that Viola’s father has promised her to the stuffy Lord Wessex in order to gain a title for their family. Under the veil of secrecy, Will and Viola’s passionate love affair becomes the basis of the very play he is writing – Romeo and Juliet. With opening night – and the wedding day – fast approaching, the plots race toward a parallel conclusion. Will it all work out in the end or are the two star-crossed lovers destined for tragedy? 

August 3rd, 4th, 10th, and 11th at 8:00 pm and August 5th and 12th at 2:00 pm
