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 will be directed by Blanche McIntyre, who is returning to the Globe having previously directed The Comedy of Errors in 2014 and As You Like It in 2015. Winner of the 2011 Critics’ Circle Most Promising Newcomer Award, she has most recently directed The Norman Conquests at Chichester Festival Theatre and has also worked at the Donmar Warehouse, Nottingham Playhouse and the RSC. The play stars Will Keen (The Crown, Wolf Hall) as Leontes, Priyanga Burford (W1A, Marcella) as Hermione and Annette Badland (EastEnders, Father Brown) as Old Shepherd.
