Scene 8

Scene 8

  • On her balcony, Viola practices the lines from Shakespeare's new play…
  • …when suddenly Shakespeare shows up below her balcony.
  • They engage in some intense whispering about plays and poetry, and she compliments him as a writer of high esteem, before the nurse calls Viola away.
  • Will climbs the vines (Fiennes on vines!) and bumps into the nurse at the top of the balcony.
  • She screams, and he runs from the estate.
  • Back at his apartment, Will engages in a high-speed writing montage. Act one of the play is complete.
