Even as our theatres reopen, there are still plenty of ways you can enjoy our productions, features and other work from the comfort of your own home.

See The Winter's Tale on BBC iPlayer

Erica Whyman's The Winter's Tale was reimagined for the screen and broadcast on BBC Four in April 2021. You can watch the full production on BBC iPlayer now. A BSL-interpreted version is also available.
