RADA: The Winter’s Tale

RADA | Drama

by William Shakespeare
directed by Philip Franks
designed by Adrian Linford

Thou met’st with things dying, I with things new born.

Shakespeare’s late romance combines tragedy and pastoral comedy in a work that crosses time and oceans, from intense jealousy and heartbreak to bawdy humour and mystical salvation.

In the grip of an obsessive and envious rage, Leontes drives his heartbroken wife and son to their deaths, ordering his newborn daughter to be abandoned. As time passes and the cold winter gives way to a redemptive spring, homecomings and revelations bring the hope of a miracle that will restore the order of the court and reunite a family.
