The Winters Tale
Directed by Simon Godwin, designed by Miriam Nabarro, lit by James Farncombe, produced by Headlong, Schtanhaus and Nuffield Southampton
**** The Guardian, Lyn Gardner "... This is a really terrific touring production: uncluttered, good at storytelling, neatly designed with a nod to the 1930s, and full of nifty touches. Shakespeare's most famous stage direction, "exit, pursued by a bear", becomes an act of the imagination involving Perdita's teddy bear"
**** The Stage "... a magnificent evenings entertainment... a revelation...Simon Godwin directs this stunning production with innovation, flair and a modernistic approach... an inspirational production"
British Theatre Guide "...Designer Miriam Nabarro presents a pared down setting...Headlong's romantic wintery tale lightly seduces without the fear of the cold, dark bite of frost."
