The renowned all-male company Propeller return to the Hampstead, following sell-out success last year, with a visceral production of The Winter's Tale.
Led by Director Edward Hall, internationally acclaimed all-male company, Propeller is 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.
The Winter’s Tale tells the mysterious, extraordinary, tragic story of a man consumed by an inexplicable jealousy that destroys his family, his kingdom and himself.
Wracked with 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.
This is a re-visiting of Propeller’s highly-acclaimed 2005 production.
Propeller's stay at the Hampstead also includes a production of Henry V.
