The Winter’s Tale

Clear Selection

Event Description

From the wintry cool courts of Sicilia to the summer sun festivities of Bohemia, experience seasonal change and the passage of time in this spectacular comedy drama.

The Winter’s Tale combines the best of Shakespeare’s comedies, tragedies and histories to make for an entertaining night at the theatre – controlling kings, a courageous queen, kind princes, a lost princess, courtroom drama, storms, shipwrecks, festivals, runaway couples, a rogue-ish trickster, disguises, mistaken identities, emotional reunions and a spellbinding final act!

Considered by critics to be one of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, this vibrant production will be a delightful and gripping feast of ensemble action, comedy, drama, trials, love, romance, live music, puppetry and magic. Suitable for all ages, this enchanting and exciting play – with one of theatre’s most famous stage exits (involving a bear …) – is the perfect way to spend a summer’s evening with family, friends, loved ones or solo.

Sun & Moon Theatre are thrilled to be returning to Penlee Park Open Air Theatre for a 4th time having performed Romeo and Juliet in 2023, Much Ado about Nothing in 2022 and As You Like It in 2021.
