UK premiere of Tracy Young's gripping new translation of Shakespeare's bold and moving play.

It’s the toughest winter ever in Sicilia Court, a rundown council estate still waiting to be levelled up.

High costs and low wages mean cold homes, hungry stomachs and desperate minds – it’s impossible for anyone to hold their nerve here.

When the king of the estate accuses his wife of cheating, he shames her in public and threatens anyone who dares to challenge him.

As jealousy and rage spiral out of control, unthinkable cruelty takes over the estate and everything falls apart.

Is there any hope that the truth will out, and will the community ever recover?

The Winter’s Tale is co-created by Deaf, disabled, LGBTQ+, global majority and working class theatre makers.

Supported by Play On Shakespeare, Attenborough Arts Centre, Derby Theatre and Shakespeare’s Globe.
