Thursday 4th October – THE WINTER’S TALE: LIVE FROM SHAKESPEARE’S GLOBE

7.15 £12/£10

The Winter’s  Tale is  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.
