The Winter's Tale and Harlequinade / All On Her Own

Shakespeare's timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption is reimagined in a new production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, following their triumphant staging of Macbeth in Manchester and Manhattan. Judi Dench plays Paulina with Kenneth Branagh as Leontes.

Running in repertory with The Winter's Tale is a unique double bill of plays by Terence Rattigan - Harlequinade and All On Her Own.

In this rarely seen comic gem, a classical theatre company attempts to produce The Winter's Tale and Romeo and Juliet, while the intrigues and dalliances of the company members are accidently revealed with increasingly chaotic and hysterical consequences...
In a striking contrast that displays Rattigan's astonishing range, All On Her Own tells the story of Rosemary who, alone at midnight in London, has a secret burden to share that is at times both heart-breaking and sinister.
