One audience member. One love story. Ten beats per line.

When William Shakespeare finds himself with writer’s block, his Muse delivers inspiration in the form of a surprise guest with a story to tell. At each performance, a willing patron is invited on stage to sit down with the Bard and share their personal love story. Every life is Shakespearean.

Award-winning actor/improviser Rebecca Northan and a cast of some of Canada's top improv talent spontaneously create Shakespeare's “lost play” based on one person’s real-life romantic adventures – in iambic pentameter.

“From the creator of Blind Date comes her latest imagining. We are thrilled to be part of this new work in progress – and collaborating with the Stratford Festival. Blind Date has been seen around the world – imagine where this might travel.” - Dennis Garnhum

In development through the COMPASS New Play Development Program and the Stratford Festival Laboratory.
