The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare from the Globe Theatre
After the success of our first season of filmed live events last autumn, we are delighted to announce a second season of six screenings.
All evenings will be again introduced by Barry Purves with informed trivia, anecdotes and some background of the production. The bar will be open as usual before and after the show and during the interval. So please come and join us in a friendly, informal atmosphere and take advantage of sensational screening facilities as well as our low prices and free car park.
As we shiver in winter, come and be warmed by Shakespeare’s most surprising play. A seemingly random tale that ranges from brutal jealousy, through abandoned babies, wild scenes of peasant merrymaking, and finishing with what is probably the most theatrically bold and most extraordinary and certainly the most moving scene that Shakespeare ever wrote. The play also contains the famous, and challenging, stage direction ‘Exit, pursued by a bear’.
This production was filmed in the autumn of 2018 live at the Globe Theatre in London, and captures the unique, boisterous and involving atmosphere of that theatre.
The cast of familiar faces is led by Will Keen as Leontes, who was recently seen in Wolf Hall and The Crown. The production features music by Stephen Warbeck who composed the score to Shakespeare in Love
The running time is 177 minutes, including an interval.
