Directed by Edward Hall, William Shakespeare’s 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.

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

Internationally acclaimed all-male company, Propeller, return to the Belgrade 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.

It’s Shakespeare rediscovered.

Directed by Edward Hall
Designed by Michael Pavelka
Lighting designed by Ben Ormerod
