The Winter's Tale
"The silence often of pure innocence
Persuades when speaking fails."
Starring Jeremy Kemp, Ann Calder-Marshall, Robert Stephens, Debbie Farrington and MArgaret Tyzack...
Leontes, King of Sicilia becomes convinced that his wife, Hermione, is guilty of adultery with his friend Polixenes, the King of Bohemia. He sends his wife to prison and tries to kill his friend – setting in motion a train of tragic consequences.
This stylised production of one of Shakespeare’s most haunting and enigmatic late works revels in its intense conflicts. An excellent cast (including Jeremy Kemp as a magnificent Leontes) highlight the tragic intensity and comic grace of this play.
