About The Winter’s Tale

The Winter's Tale
by William Shakespeare
directed by Max Webster

“Though I am not naturally honest, I am sometimes so by chance.”

The Lyceum returns to the Shakespearian canon with acclaimed director Max Webster (King Lear with Michael Pennington; Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare's Globe) presenting a uniquely Scottish take on this bitter-sweet masterpiece.

When King Leontes suspects his wife Hermione of adultery his jealousy tears the kingdom apart. The queen is banished and believed dead, while their daughter Perdita is abandoned among simple shepherd folk. Passionate tragedy interweaves with pastoral comedy, leading to one of Shakespeare’s most magical and moving denouements.

This late, great play is performed by a talented company of actor musicians in a vibrant and lyrical production.
