Shakespeare on the Beach returns to Margate Main Sands with The Winter’s Tale.
The story is set in Sicily and Bohemia and Leontes has everything a man could want, wealth, power, a family that loves him and friends. But he is not at peace. Inside he harbours a bitter jealousy that drives him to destroy all he holds dear. Many years later, in a distant country, a journey begins that may ultimately heal his pain and reunite his family.
The performance comes from Changeling Theatre…and includes a hint of Abba!
The play contains Shakespeare’s most famous but challenging stage direction: ‘Exit, pursued by a bear.’
