Sculptures breathe and kings weep in the Bard's late masterpiece of wit and wisdom, The Winter's Tale. Cheek by Jowl tackle the countless hairpin turns from violence to farce, through multiple countries and over the course of 16 years in a fiercely contemporary production.
When King Leontes suspects his wife of infidelity, he throws her in prison and initiates a chain of events that destroys his once-happy family. Fundamental questions about redemption and forgiveness are tackled in this tour-de-force interpretation, testing the limits of hope and humanity.
Playing at the Citizens Theatre for the first time, Cheek by Jowl is one of the world's leading theatre companies and a regular on the global festival circuit. Their production of The Winter's Tale has received rave reviews during its European tour.
