SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE at Coolidge Corner

9/10/2019 Coolidge Corner Theatre
7pm

Tom Stoppard penned the screenplay for this triumphant smash hit with Marc Norman, winning them both Academy Awards, along with six others for the film including Best Picture. When Will Shakespeare needs passionate inspiration to break a bad case of writer's block, a secret romance with the beautiful Lady Viola (Gwyneth Paltrow) starts the words flowing like never before. There are just two things he'll have to learn about his new love: not only is she promised to marry someone else, but she's successfully impersonating a man in order to play the lead in Will's latest production!

But no one at Winchester University is prepared for Pastiche’s outrageous, ill-conceived annual Halloween party, with its “unleash your inner Negro” theme throwing oil on an already smoldering fire of resentment and misunderstanding. When the party descends into riotous mayhem, everyone must choose a side.

Featuring a post-screening conversation with guests from the Huntington Theatre Company's production of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead.

About Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead

by Tom Stoppard | Directed by Peter DuBois
September 20 - October 20, 2019
Avenue of the Arts / Huntington Avenue Theatre

Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning Best Play arrives in a marvelously funny, spectacularly beautiful new production. This modern-day classic tragicomedy imagines the lives of two minor characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. As the story unfolds, they voice their confusion about the play that’s being performed without them, untangling bigger questions about life and death, reality and art. It’s all from the pen of Academy Award and four-time Best Play Tony Award winner Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, The Real Thing, and Arcadia), and directed by the Huntington’s own Artistic Director, Peter DuBois.
