Shakespeare in LoveTom Bateman plays the role of Will Shakespeare and Lucy Briggs-Owen will play Viola De Lesseps in the stage version of the hit 1998 film Shakespeare in Love, adapted by writer Lee Hall, whose previous hit productions include The Pitman Painters and Billy Elliot. The stage adaptation, directed and designed by Cheek by Jowl's Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, is "the best British comedy since One Man, Two Guvnors" (The Telegraph), a music and dance extravaganza which transports the audience back to Shakespeare's London. Based on the screenplay by Marc Norman and Tom Stoppard, the story follows promising playwright Will Shakespeare who is plagued by debt and tormented by writer's block. In his search for a new hit he finds inspiration in his muse, the young noblewoman, Viola De Lesseps. The backstory to the writing of Romeo and Juliet, which includes a walk-on part for Queen Elizabeth herself, has all the ingredients for a huge hit.
