Northern Broadsides in partnership with Harrogate Theatre present
The Winter’s Tale
By William Shakespeare

The Winter’s Tale is a rich, romantic fable of jealousy, love and redemption. King Leontes falsely accuses his Queen of infidelity with his closest friend. He proclaims their newborn daughter a bastard and condemns the innocent to death. But the child, Perdita, survives.

What follows is a beautiful and beguiling love story where the cold hand of winter gives way to the lightness and vibrancy of spring. A joyous tale culminating in forgiveness, love and happiness.

The Winter's Tale will transport you from the dark court of a jealous king to the bright sunshine of a rustic festival, where country girls sing saucy songs and a Prince can utter marriage vows to a lowly shepherd’s daughter … and we believe it.

You are in expert hands with the award winning Northern Broadsides, whose rich tradition of daringly theatrical story-telling, performed by a charismatic cast of actor-musicians, will warm your heart and lift your spirits.
