The Winters Tale

Directed by Gill Morell

5th - 10th July 2021

Cleeve House, Trowbridge Road, Seend, SN12 6PG

This is a play of two halves - a heart-rending study of marital jealousy  ending in apparent tragedy and realisation of guilt, and the light-hearted, romantic  Bohemia where young love is fulfilled . So, typically for one of the late 'problem' plays, it appeals both to lovers of serious, thoughtful Shakespearian tragedy, and to those who enjoy laughter, love and fun. 

 

Starting in a formal garden in winter in late !8th century Sicily, and moving to mid-European summer fifteen years later, a fairy-tale happy ending and redemption are almost miraculously contrived amid an explosion of joyful sound and colour.
