Originally produced on the West End by Disney Theatrical Productions & Sonia Freedman Productions, directed by Declan Donnellan and designed by Nick Ormerod.

Independent Theatre's Shakespeare in Love opens from 24 November at Star Theatres. Tickets are now on sale for this strictly limited season at Star Theatre 1, 145 Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Hilton.

Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman's Academy Award-winning screenplay has been transformed by Lee Hall (author of hit musical Billy Elliot) into a side-splitting stage, romantic comedy and, in a South Australian first, is being performed by Adelaide's Independent Theatre.

The beloved 1998 feature film featured a star-studded cast including Joseph Fiennes, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Judi Dench and went on to win seven Academy Awards.

Shakespeare in Love reimagines William Shakespeare's creative process as he writes the greatest love story of all time.

Struggling young playwright, Will Shakespeare, is tormented by writer’s block, working on his latest project - Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter. That is, until he finds his Muse in the beautiful Viola de Lesseps, who secretly wishes to be an actor. Their forbidden love draws many others - including Queen Elizabeth - into this often hilarious romantic drama, and inspires Will to write the greatest love story of all time.
