Description

1593. The rising young star of London’s theatre scene, Will Shakespeare, faces a paralyzing bout of writer’s block. No matter how he tries, he just can’t seem to work up any enthusiasm for his latest play, “Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter”. Will needs a muse – and in an extraordinary moment in which life imitates art, he finds and falls for a woman who draws him into a world of dramatic adventure and star-crossed love. Lady Viola, desperate to become an actor at a time when women were forbidden from such depravity, disguises herself as a man to audition for Will’s play. But the guise slips away as their passion ignites. Now Will’s quill again begins to flow, this time turning love into words, as Viola becomes his real-life Juliet and Romeo finds his reason to exist. Yet all is not well in Will’s world. For even as the parchment begins to pile up, he is plagued by real-life twists of fate.
