'Shakespeare in Love' plot:

William Shakespeare, a young and ambitious playwright and actor, promises to write a new play for the director of the Rose Theatre but he is suffering from writer’s block. His inspiration comes from his love for Viola but this means he has to make an impossible choice – his beloved theatre or the woman he loves? Risk and sacrifice are written into the tragic fate of the protagonists in this play – just as in Shakespeare. But even in this sad story there are still occasions for laughter.
