Shakespeare In Love extends

First Published 22 August 2014, Last Updated 22 August 2014

Shakespeare In Love, the stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning film, has proved so popular with London theatre audiences that it will extend its run at the Noël Coward Theatre until 2015.

The romantic comedy that boasts one of the largest casts for a play ever seen in the West End will put 76,000 more tickets on sale from 1 September. The new tickets will give audiences the opportunity to book tickets for performances up to 10 January.

Adapted for the stage by Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall, Shakespeare In Love is a tale of love and writer’s block, as the world’s most famous playwright grapples with an inability to put words on a page only to find his pen inspired when he meets Lady Viola De Lesseps. As he knows only too well, the course of true love never did run smooth, and Viola’s social standing combined with her aching desire to star on a stage where only men can perform combine to create a delightfully hilarious conundrum.

The remarkable ensemble cast is led by Tom Bateman and Lucy Briggs-Owen as the lovers, and also features the canine talents of Barney the dog.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
