Shakespeare in Love

Noel Coward Theatre
10 July

Playwright of the river,
drinking with whores
and mongrels
in a backstreet tavern;

Poet of Cheapside,
pressing love
onto a page
with a sigh of ink.

For all your words
was there a girl
who would have been a boy
to tread the boards with you,

a girl whose heart you met
like twin souls on the stage,
before she was 
forever wrenched away?

Shakespeare in Love runs 
at the Noel Coward Theatre 
until 25 October 2014
