The Winter's Tale, The Watermill Theatre, Newbury

Somehow it does not matter that The Winter's Tale is more complex than any single production can fully realise. As with so much of Shakespeare, we find our breath taken away by the originality of its human relationships, its theatrical situations, its violent emotions and above all its piercing imagery, so that to return to the play in the theatre is often to feel we are experiencing it for the first time."

It was a fabby production - I really enjoyed it - the second half, particularly Mopsa and Dorcus, made me laugh very hard.
