The Royal Shakespeare Company joins forces with BBC4 for the world premiere of A Winter’s Tale, a production intended for the 2020 stage and all but lost to theatre history.
The Royal Shakespeare Company has released full details of its summer 2021 programme which includes an artists’ impression of the newly conceived Lydia & Manfred Gorvy Garden Theatre.
With the one-year anniversary of theatres being forced to close in sight, the Royal Shakespeare Company has announced that audiences will now get the chance to see The Winter’s Tale and The Comedy of Errors, two of its postponed 2020 major Shakespeare productions.
The Royal Shakespeare Company will focus its programming in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Stratford-upon-Avon over the coming year, with the Swan Theatre and The Other Place remaining closed until 2022
The Royal Shakespeare Company has announced its schedule for summer 2020, a season of Shakespeare plays exploring separation, loss and deep bonds of family.
It honestly doesn’t let up. At all. After an Edinburgh-focused August, and a ‘keep myself busy at all costs’ September (mostly to avoid the hell that is rush hour transport), October has rolled in, bursting at the seams because there is too much to do.
Priyanga Burford spoke to Love London Love Culture’s Emma Clarendon about her role as Hermione in The Winter’s Tale at the Shakespeare’s Globe and her upcoming role in BBC’s new drama Press.
Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Blanche McIntyre’s production of The Winter’s Tale, playing at the Shakespeare’s Globe until 14 October.
Brush up your Shakespeare? Well yes, Cole Porter, I had plenty of chances to do just that last week when I attended Shakespeare performances on three consecutive evenings.
This is a superb and brilliantly performed production of Shakespeare’s ‘problem’ play. If you know the Globe, this Winter’s Tale is a terrific summer show. If you don’t know the venue, then what an introduction.
An enlightening production of a potentially troublesome play, fantastically well conceptualised and beautifully designed – complete with some memorable and scene-stealing performances.
First seen in Edinburgh last year, Half Breed is one of those plays that embrace you warmly and hold you tight for all of its 60-minute duration.
What could merely be dismissed as make-believe in The Winter’s Tale gains real significance in what it can achieve for social cohesion, planting seeds in the minds of future theatremakers.
What is personally the most galling is the programming of Twelfth Night. Emma Rice’s production was my favourite show of 2017. It almost feels like they’re trying to brush it under the carpet by putting it on again so soon.
Former and current artistic directors Mark Rylance and Michelle Terry will take to the stage this year in Terry’s inaugural season at Shakespeare’s Globe.
This was a year where the work touring into Bristol and the work I saw in Latitude, London, the cinema and New York dazzled.
Lots of updates coming from the South Bank today after the National Theatre’s press conference earlier this month when artistic director Rufus Norris unveiled programming plans for 2018. Today, further dates and casting for many of those productions are announced.
The Winter’s Tale is one of my favourite Shakespeare play. It often divides its critics – many people are of the opinion that its lack of unity is its great undoing.
This world premiere production created by ENO’s composer-in-residence Ryan Wigglesworth is directed by actor Rory Kinnear – but does it appeal to the critics?
Lucid and engaging, the Lyceum’s Scottish-set production of The Winter’s Tale has much to recommend it, even if it does not quite convince.
