Arts Center presents: Shakespeare in Love: a film screening produced in collaboration with Westport Arts Center
Westport Arts Center, 51 Riverside Avenue, Westport. Admission Fee: $10/person.The plays of William Shakespeare have inspired innumerable film adaptations, but in John Madden's Shakespeare in Love, it is the writer's life that is re-imagined. With a screenplay by noted playwright Tom Stoppard, this delightful concoction - full of heroes, villains, backstage intrigue, and, like Twelfth Night, even a loveable heroine disguised in male garb - won seven Academy Awards. David Kennedy, Associate Artistic Director of Westport Country Playhouse, will introduce the screening and provide context to the themes explored in the film. This film is rated "R."
