Shakespeare in Love

1 April @ 7:30 pm - 9 April @ 7:30 pm

£16 – £18

Pick Me Up Theatre presents Shakespeare in Love





With a top notch cast of the county’s finest, costumes sourced from the best theatres including the RSC and musicians with a host of authentic instruments – including an actual hurdy gurdy – this is not a production to be missed.


“I would stay asleep all my life if I could dream myself into a company of players”

Lee Hall’s stage adaptation of Shakespeare in Love, the Oscar-winning film written by Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman, is a rollicking celebration of the joys of theatre.

It’s a love story about struggling young playwright Will Shakespeare and a feisty, free-thinking young noblewoman who helps him overcome his writer’s block and becomes his muse.

And it’s a love letter to the stage itself – bursting with humour, wonderful characters and theatrical allusions.

Viola de Lesseps is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing – including breaking the law and dressing as a boy actor – to appear in his next play.

Against a bustling background of mistaken identity, ruthless scheming and backstage theatrics, Will’s love for Viola quickly blossoms, inspiring him to write his greatest romantic masterpiece – Romeo and Juliet.

Funny and moving in equal measures, the stage version of Shakespeare in Love was acclaimed as “riotously enjoyable” and a show that “makes you feel grateful to be alive” when it premiered in London in 2014.
