Part of the Alliance Series

Recommended for ages 12+ —contains mild language and sexual situations.

Described as “an absolute joy from beginning to end” (Daily Express), Shakespeare in Love is a new play based on the 1998 film that won seven Academy Awards including Best Picture. Young Will Shakespeare has writer's block... the deadline for his new play is fast approaching but he's in desperate need of inspiration. That is, until he finds his muse – Viola. This beautiful young woman is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including breaking the law) to appear in his next play.  Against a bustling background of mistaken identity, ruthless scheming, and backstage theatrics, Will’s love for Viola quickly blossoms and inspires him to write his greatest masterpiece. Georgia Shakespeare Artistic Director Richard Garner directs this love letter to William Shakespeare in his company’s former home at Oglethorpe University.

“Our ongoing partnership with the Alliance helps to provide exceptional arts education for our students and the community, while bringing world-class theater to North Atlanta. As Brookhaven’s premier arts venue, the Conant Performing Arts Center promises to be an ideal ‘home away from home’ for the Alliance.” —Dr. Larry Schall; President, Oglethorpe University

Without using the words in your job title, what do you do at the Alliance?
"I guess you can call me the theatre therapist."

To mark the end of the Alliance Stage as we know it, and to welcome the new era with the start of the big renovation, Pearl Cleage, our Mellon Playwright in Residence, wrote a piece to commemorate this special occasion.
