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.
Snippets of Hamlet, Henry V, As You Like It and Julius Caesar delivered by some of my favourite actors – including Alex Jennings, Michelle Terry, Ashley Zhangazha, Jamie Parker and Will Keen – is an enrichment to any Sunday. Why must it come down this weekend? Why not make it a permanent Bankside installation?
