The Winter's Tale - Encore Screening
Fri 8 January 2016 | Festival Theatre
Shakespeare's timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption is reimagined in a new production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, following their triumphant staging of Macbeth in Manchester and Manhattan.
King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences…
The Winter’s Tale will star a remarkable group of actors, featuring Judi Dench as Paulina, alongside Tom Bateman (Florizel), Jessie Buckley (Perdita), Hadley Fraser (Polixenes), Miranda Raison (Hermione) and Kenneth Branagh as Leontes.
"Sublime" The Independent
"Kenneth Branagh is tremendous.. It's a play that, when it works, casts a spell like no other, and this production is magical. It is hard to imagine the play more movingly performed. It's a gift to the eye and heart... Judi Dench shines as the mistress of ceremonies" The Observer
"Plays out like a miracle" Mail on Sunday
"It doesn't get much better than this" Daily Express
"Branaugh and Dench are surrounded by a first-rate team" The Guardian
"Splendid, starry and sincere" The Stage
