The Winter's Tale

The Winter's Tale

Recently awarded the Golden Lion of Venice for his ability to bring classic works to life for a contemporary audience, Declan Donnellan directs a revelatory Winter’s Tale

Overview

Shakespeare tears apart nearly every rule of theatre. Low comedy interrupts high tragedy, kings jostle with thieves, and the stage is invaded by clowns, a princess, a bear and Time herself, who announces a sixteen-year interval.

Critic reviews

Throughout, Jane Gibson's perfectly calibrated choreography emphasises the meaning of each action; here it shifts from absolute stillness to destructive frenzy in the blink of an eye - It is intelligent and challenging.
