Due to phenomenal demand, The Winter’s Tale, Shakespeare’s timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption, will broadcast in theaters this festive season. This beautifully reimagined production, which was originally broadcasted in November of 2015, is co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, and features a remarkable cast including Dame Judi Dench as Paulina, alongside Tom Bateman, Jessie Buckley, Hadley Fraser, Miranda Raison, and Sir Kenneth Branagh as Leontes.
King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family, and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences…
This critically acclaimed production was the first in the hugely successful Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Live season that was broadcast to cinemas from London’s Garrick Theatre over the course of a year in 2015.
