With the most famous stage direction of all time, The Winter’s Tale is a thriller and fairytale rolled into one.

When Leontes, King of Sicilia, becomes convinced his wife, Hermione, is having an affair, he is consumed with jealousy. Ill at ease with the world around him, he lashes out at those closest to him, abandoning his daughter to distant Bohemia.

Charming, wild and magical, Shakespeare’s masterpiece is imagined afresh in this bold production.
