“Shakespeare as it should be done, fast, sinuous and surprising” The Independent

A tragic fairytale, The Winter’s Tale tells the mysterious and extraordinary story of a man consumed by an inexplicable jealousy that destroys his family, his kingdom and himself. Wracked by guilt, Leontes sets off a chain reaction of events that leads to a miraculous climax and the chance of redemption. The greatest playwright writing at the height of his powers, this is poetry in motion.

Led by Director Edward Hall, internationally acclaimed all-male company, Propeller, returns to Plymouth following their highly praised productions of Richard III and The Comedy Of Errors. Renowned for combining a rigorous approach to the text with an exciting, physical aesthetic, Propeller engages its audience’s imagination and brings fresh understanding to classic plays.
