Families and friendships are torn apart in Shakespeare’s epic play The Winter’s Tale. King Leontes is tormented by a paranoid delusion that his wife, Hermione, is having an affair with his best friend. After throwing Hermione in prison and abandoning their new-born child to the wilderness, the King only then realises their innocence. On discovering the death of his wife, Leontes is inconsolable with grief and regret... is there any hope for redemption?
With song, dance, laughter and one of the most extraordinary climaxes in any of Shakespeare's plays, this powerful and deeply moving story of forgiveness is brought to life in Bolton on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.
