Midwinter magic

Shakespeare’s far-reaching tale of how emotions can tear through age, country and class is being broadcast from the renowned reconstruction of his very own Globe Theatre this January. Ludlow Assembly Rooms are screening the bard’s great play of the irrational and inexplicable, ‘The Winter’s Tale’, in their Oscars venue on Sunday 20 January at 3pm and 6pm.

The tale’s universe encompasses monsters, gods and natural disasters, telling its story with a colossal sweep that takes audiences from the stifling atmosphere of the Sicilian court to the unbuttoned joy of a Bohemian festival.

Staged at the beautiful London theatre, a reconstruction of an open-air Elizabethan playhouse on the bank of the River Thames, this new production is directed by Blanche McIntyre and stars Will Keen (The Crown, Wolf Hall), Priyanga Burford (W1A, Marcella) and Annette Badland (EastEnders, Father Brown). Tickets are £16.40 (£14.50 concessions) – visit ludlowassemblyrooms.co.uk or call 01584 878141 for details.
