Gather the family for an interactive, time-travelling, country hopping workshop which delves into the story of The Winter’s Tale.
It all starts with an argument. A really big argument where King Leontes of Sicilia accuses his wife, Hermione, of being a little too friendly with his best friend, Polixenes, the King of Bohemia. We’ve all been there. It results in more misunderstandings, abandoned babies and bears than you can shake a stick at… Can magic save the day?
Storytellings are led by one of the Globe’s highly experienced practitioners who include actors, teachers and directors.
Ha, ha! What a fool honesty is!
— Act IV, scene 4
