by William Shakespeare

28 June – 1 July

The Winter’s Tale is set across 16 years and begins with two friends, Leontes and Polixenes, and Leontes’ pregnant wife, Hermione, celebrating with friends. Leontes’ jealousy and suspicion of the relationship between his wife and his friend causes him to send his wife to trial, causing her to give birth early. Leontes sends his newborn daughter to be killed. However, Antigonus, who was sent to Bohemia to kill the child, gave her mercy and the child, Perdita, is found by a Shepherd and his son and is raised as their own child.

Director Georgie Wood sets the first half of the play (Sicilia) at the end of the war in Britain in Churchill’s Cabinet War Rooms and the second half (Bohemia) in 1961, in New York’s Bohemian Greenwich Village.
