The Winter’s Tale: Live from Shakespeare’s Globe 12A

Broadcast live to cinema from Shakespeare’s Globe, London

 

The Winter’s Tale is Shakespeare’s great play of the irrational and inexplicable, illustrating how uncontrollable emotions can range across gender, country, class and age. Its universe is full of monsters, gods and natural disasters with a colossal sweep that takes audiences from the stifling atmosphere of the Sicilian court to the unbuttoned joy of a Bohemian festival.

Staged at the beautiful and iconic Globe Theatre in London, this new production is directed by Blanche McIntyre and stars Will Keen (The Crown, Wolf Hall) as Leontes, Priyanga Burford (W1A, Marcella) as Hermione and Annette Badland (EastEnders, Father Brown) as Old Shepherd.

A reconstruction of an open-air Elizabethan playhouse on the bank of the River Thames, the Globe Theatre has become a significant part of the national and international theatre landscape, celebrating Shakespeare’s transformative impact on the world. Continuing its popular Globe On Screen series, The Winter’s Tale will be broadcast live to cinemas on Thursday 4 October 2018.

The Winter's Tale is a 'brilliantly performed production' (The Stage ★★★★★) with 'a superb cast' (The Guardian ★★★★) that explores 'Shakespeare at his most sad, his most human and his most joyful' (WhatsOnStage ★★★★).
