2016: Our 10th Anniversary Year "New Beginnings"

8 - 27 February 2016

Holy Trinity Church, Guildford High Street

Directed by Caroline Devlin | Designed by Neil Irish | Sound by Matt Eaton

When Leontes, King of Sicilia, accuses his wife of being unfaithful with his childhood friend, the King of Bohemia, he sets in motion a chain of terrible events that destroys everything he holds dear.

 It is only the tender actions of an old man, and the redemptive power of Time, which affords any hope that all may not be completely lost.

"It is required you do awake your faith"

A beautiful, captivating fable of contrasts, The Winter's Tale spans 16 years, taking its audience from dark tragedy to bright new hope. From the power and majesty of Victorian England to the vibrancy and colour of India, we invite you to join us on this enchanting journey of rediscovery and redemption. Shakespeare's great, late play features one of the most truly magical moments in theatre, and possibly the most famous of stage directions: "Exit pursued by a bear".

Caroline Devlin returns to direct following her triumphs with King Lear, Othello and Macbeth

The Winter’s Tale kicks off our 2016 celebration theme of “New Beginnings” in our 10th Anniversary Year


The Winter's Tale cast will be here very soon...



Shakespeare's Homecoming

Wed 20 Jan, 7pm St Mary's Church

The Winter’s Tale can be viewed as a turning point in Shakespeare’s life as he began to look back to Stratford and the call to home. Reconciliation and forgiveness, themes that pervade Shakespeare’s final plays, are at the heart of this story.

As rehearsals get underway for the main show, GSC's Matt Pinches presents this introduction to the play and asks the question whether this is was the momont he began thinking of retirement from the theatre world...
