This is the world premiere of Ryan Wigglesworth's new interpretation of Shakespeare’s tale of love, loss and reconciliation: "The Winter's Tale".
When King Leontes believes that his pregnant wife has had an affair with his childhood friend, he orders that her baby be abandoned. But the baby is found by a shepherd and Perdita grows up to become a lost princess.
In later life King Leontes stands repentant before a statue of his dead queen, praying for redemption. Will there be and a family reunion?
