> The Winter's Tale is a tragic comedy by Shakespeare. It was probably
> originally written in 1610 or 1611; with the first known performance of
> the play being in 1611. It was adapted by Complicite, directed by Annabel
> Arden, and was toured in January 1992.
> The cast consisted of only nine actors, many of whom played two or three
> parts. Kathryn Hunter receives considerable praise for her portrayal of
> Mamillius, Paulina and the Shepherd. The play takes the audience through
> all emotions,
> 'The play begins with disco music, popping champagne corks and manic
> games of blind-man's-buff, yet it quickly becomes clear that the party
> spirit is not shared by Leontes'
> Charles Spencer - Daily Telegraph, April 1992

> Progressing to scenes of violence, torment and despair, before the final
> scenes of mourning, where the whole cast change on stage to mourning
> robes.
