The Winter's Tale, by William Shakespeare. Theatre & Performing Arts

the_winters_tale_by_william_shakespeare


“The Winter's Tale” is a very strange play . . . . . a combination of tragedy & imminent disaster, bawdy comedy & earthy high spirits.

. . . . At the end of his writing career, Shakespeare was moving into new territory, so he gives us here a hybrid drama that combines tragedy and imminent disaster, with bawdy comedy and earthy high spirits. After the runaway success of last year’s Tisbury Arts Group production of The Falstaff Chronicles, we return to the stunning setting of the Commandery in Ansty, to present one of the late flowerings of Shakespeare’s unequalled dramatic genius. It’s a rare opportunity to experience one of the Bard’s less well-known works – fun & laughter, tragedy & tears - all culminating in a completely unexpected and magical climax! To see how it all unravels, come to "Shakespeare at the Commandery" – a picturesque and unique setting in the delightful village of Ansty, in SW Wiltshire. Bring a small picnic; or enjoy a pre-theatre drink by the lake.

Performances start at 7.30 pm Gates open at 6.30 pm Tickets £10.00 available from Tisbury Post Office, High St, Tisbury SP3 6LD 01747 870200 Book Early – limited ticket numbers Free parking; Disabled access; Licensed Bar
