Stuart Wilde rehearses Shakespeare in Love

Date - 5 December, 2014, All News Theatre

Stuart Wilde will take over the role of John Webster from 12 January 2015 at the Noël Coward Theatre, West End. Declan Donnellan directs this smash hit drama based on the 1998 film of the same name co-produced by Disney Theatrical Productions and Sonia Friedman Productions.

Young Will Shakespeare has writer’s block… the deadline for his new play is fast approaching but he’s in desperate need of inspiration.

That is, until he finds his muse – Viola. This beautiful young woman is Will’s greatest admirer and will stop at nothing (including breaking the law) to appear in his next play.

Against a bustling background of mistaken identity, ruthless scheming and backstage theatrics, Will’s love for Viola quickly blossoms and inspires him to write his greatest masterpiece.


Stuart was named ‘One to Watch’ in The Independent Culture Magazine.

He was nominated for ‘Best Leading Actor in a New Production of a Play’ for the 2014 BroadwayWorld UK awards playing Tommo in Private Peaceful.

Stuart made his West End Stage debut playing John Webster in Shakespeare In Love at the Noël Coward Theatre, directed by Declan Donnellan.

He played Pritchard in the first-person shooter video game Battlefield 1 by EA DICE, estimated to have sold 16 million copies, and Romeo in Romeo and Juliet at The Watermill which went on to tour nationally and internationally.
