The Winter's Tale

Reimagined for the screen

Overview

King Leontes rips his family apart with his jealousy but grief opens his heart. Will he find the child he abandoned before it is too late?

Set across a 16-year span from the 1953 coronation to the moon landings, this production imagines a world where the ghosts of fascist Europe collide with horrors reminiscent of The Handmaid’s Tale, before washing up on a joyful seashore.

The Winter's Tale has been reimagined for the screen and will be broadcast on BBC Four on Sunday 25 April at 7pm, with a BSL-interpreted broadcast on Thursday 29 April at 1.10am. Both versions will then be available through BBC iPlayer.
