|Shakespeare in Love
|Based on the Oscar-winning movie, the story involves a girl who so longs to be an actor in Elizabethan theater that she pretends to be a man to get a role and meets Shakespeare, who she can never marry. Mistaken identities, swordplay and an appearance of the Queen herself add to the mayhem. All ends well, though. How? Well, it's a mystery.|
