The Winter’s Tale live cinema broadcast.
We are very excited to announce that on the 4 October 2018, More2Screen, will be broadcasting our critically acclaimed production of The Winter’s Tale live from the Globe stage to cinemas across the UK, Ireland and selected European territories.
Directed by Blanche McIntyre (The Comedy of Errors, 2014; As You Like It at the Globe, 2015), The Winter’s Tale, is Shakespeare’s great play of the irrational and inexplicable.
The play’s uncontrollable emotions – rage, love, grief and forgiveness – range across gender, country, class and age. Its universe is full of monsters, gods and natural disasters, and its colossal sweep takes us from the stifling courts of Sicilia to the unbuttoned festivals of Bohemia.
Starring Will Keen as the vengeful Leontes and Priyanga Burford his condemned wife. Sirine Saba offers hope in the form of Paulina whilst Annette Badland delights as the Old Shepherd who takes in a sparkling Norah Lopez-Holden as Perdita.
