About this show

The Winter's Tale, with its improbable twists and turns, signals Shakespeare's mature and inspired creativity. This broadly appealing romance dazzles and delights with a lovely range of poetic and dramatic invention. As is often the case in Shakespeare's writings, this is a universe where time and space intermingle freely, as do rash impulses, hasty decisions, second thoughts and tardy recognitions of the truth. Jonathan Munby, whose credits include productions at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Donmar Warehouse and Washington D.C.'s Shakespeare Theatre Company, makes his Guthrie directing debut.
