Set across a 16-year span from Mad Men to the moon landings, this new production of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale imagines a world where the ghosts of fascist Europe collide with horrors of The Handmaid’s Tale, before washing up on a joyful seashore.
King Leontes rips his family apart with his jealousy but grief opens his heart. Will he find the child he abandoned before it is too late?
A moving new production directed by Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman.
