The Winter’s Tale currently in Cardiff, inc. BSL

June 13, 2015

[Missed this in my heads up about performances in South Wales]

Taking Flight Theatre presents

The Winter’s Tale

William Shakespeare

Directed by: Elise Davison

BSL translation by: Sami Thorpe and Stephen Collins

‘If this be magic, let it be an art lawful as eating’

Shakespeare’s romantic tragi-comedy is a story of loss, repentance, love and reconciliation, and is brought to you this summer in true Taking Flight style.   . Join the party at a lively jazz club where toe tapping original music might even get you dancing- then watch as jealousy destroys this vibrant world, leaving it devoid of promise and in a state of eternal winter. Don’t despair; you’ll be whisked over the sea to a place where music, love and plenty of laughter can heal these tragic wounds.

Dress to impress but wear your outdoor shoes – this is a travelling production.

All performances are relaxed and are BSL (British Sign Language) supported.
