The Winter’s Tale in rehearsal.

Blanche McIntyre directs Shakespeare’s great play of the irrational and inexplicable.

In a fit of groundless jealousy, Leontes wrecks his marriage, defies the gods, destroys his family and ruins himself. As the years roll around, a new generation flee their own country and take refuge in Sicilia. Unknowingly they bring with them the key to the past, present and future…

The Winter’s Tale opens Friday 22 June.
