The Winter's Tale Opens at Shakespeare's Globe June 15

Shakespeare’s Globe’s 2005 season continues when The Winter’s Tale opens June 15.

Although outgoing artistic director Mark Rylance isn’t in this one, his stepdaughter, Juliet Rylance, plays Perdita.

The staging, directed by Jonathan Dove, is an original practices production. In other words, it only uses clothing, music, dance and settings that were available to the Globe of 1599 — although it does employ a mixed-sex cast.
