Synopsis

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.
