William Shakespeare’s ‘The Winter’s Tale’ outdoor theatre event at Knackershole Garden Theatre Dulverton brought to you by Sun & Moon Theatre.

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 evening in the open-air – 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!

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 Friday evening with family, friends, loved ones or solo. Book tickets to experience a winter’s tale in summertime – don’t miss the magic!
