The Winter’s Tale at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse



See Shakespeare’s late romance The Winter’s Tale in the atmospheric setting of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. The intimate candlelit indoor theatre sets the scene for the passionate story of the destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy.

Hermione, King Leontes’ wife, is suspected of adultery and, after being taken to trial, dies. Leontes is tormented by guilt and grief as he discovers his wife’s innocence, and his old friendship with King Polixenes is put to the test by unresolved suspects and remorse. Will time and providence guide Leontes to an ending of forgiveness and reconciliation?

Don’t miss the chance to see this great Shakespeare’s play in the authentic Jacobean setting for which it was written.
