‘The Winter’s Tale’ sets full cast at Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
The Shakespeare play will be told over two theatres.
The Winter’s Tale follows King Leontes as he grows suspicious of his wife’s behaviour, and ultimately banishes their child from Sicilia. For the production, director Sean Holmes transforms Sam Wanamaker Playhouse into Sicilia and Shakespeare’s Globe into Bohemia, utilising both performance spaces for one show.
Sergo Vares plays Leontes, joined by John Lightbody as Polixenes, Jacoba Williams as Perdita, Ed Gaughan as Autolycus, Nadine Higgin as Paulina, Beruce Khan as Camillo, Bea Segura as Hermione, Saran Slimani as Florizel, Colm Gormley as Antigonus and the Old Shephered, Samuel Creasey as the Young Shepherd, and Toby Barnett-Jones and George Robinson sharing the role of Mamillius.
Sean Holmes directs, with composition by Laura Moody, design by Grace Smart, and movement by Tamsin Hurtado-Clarke.
The Winter’s Tale is at Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
