THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST and THE WINTER'S TALE Will Come to Cinemas This October
On Thursday 4 October, Shakespeare's much-loved late romance The Winter's Tale will be broadcast from the iconic Globe Theatre, hosted by Jeanette Winterson and Emma Freud.
The sweeping plot of The Winter's Tale takes us from the seething, stifled Sicilian court to the joyful chaos of Bohemia. Director Blanche McIntyre's "superb cast deliver striking performances" (Guardian ****) in this great drama of irrational emotions and inexplicable forces, showing us how even the greatest cruelties can be redeemed by love, forgiveness, and a little gentle magic...
Widely considered Oscar Wilde's crowning achievement, The Importance of Being Earnestnever loses its lustre. Described by the critics as "a comic and energetic delight" (Sunday Times ****), "exceptionally funny" (Daily Express ****) and "absolutely hilarious" (WhatsOnStage *****), Michael Fentiman's production breathes fresh life into one of the most beautifully crafted comedies of all time.
