Twenty love poems are weaved together to create a fresh and original story set in contemporary Britain. 
Including Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day and My Mistress’ Eyes are Nothing Like the Sun, four lovers show us how Shakespeare’s words, with their raw emotion and feeling, are as relevant today as they were more than 400 years ago. The four narrators’ relationships are at different stages, from falling in love to moving on. 
Featuring EastEnders and Strictly Come Dancing star Rose Ayling-Ellis along with Eloka Ivo, Eben Figueiredo and Ioanna Kimbook.
