Following a hugely successful run at London’s Garrick Theatre and the record-breaking cinema broadcast, Trafalgar Releasing are delighted to be bringing Kenneth Branagh’s award-winning production of The Winter’s Tale back to cinema screens for the 2019 festive season.

Recorded live in 2015, Shakespeare’s timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption is reimagined in a production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, following their triumphant staging of Macbeth in Manchester and Manhattan.

King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends.  But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences…

The Winter’s Tale stars a remarkable group of actors, featuring Judi Dench as Paulina, alongside Tom Bateman (Florizel), Jessie Buckley (Perdita), Hadley Fraser (Polixenes), Miranda Raison (Hermione) and Kenneth Branagh as Leontes.

Also, be sure to check out our Theatre Unwrapped discussion where we take an in depth look into the show! It’s free and ready to book so come along and get involved.
