Set across a 16-year span from the 1953 coronation to the moon landings, Erica Whyman's production of The Winter's Tale imagines a world where the ghosts of fascist Europe collide with horrors reminiscent of The Handmaid’s Tale, before washing up on a joyful seashore. 

Watch the video below to learn more about the process of making the Winter's Tale for screen and see behind the scenes footage.
