Theatre: The Winter’s Tale

Kenneth Branagh said, “I am very pleased indeed to be working with
Picturehouse and Fathom to bring The Winter’s Tale live into cinemas in
the US. This play has epic dimensions but also great intimacy, and I
believe that, working with the talented director Benjamin Caron, we can
bring the immediacy and excitement of the live stage production into
cinemas. We will employ film techniques to make these broadcasts truly
cinematic, without in any way compromising the theatrical experience.”

“The Winter’s Tale,” 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. King Leontes appears to have everything:
power, wealth, a loving family and friends, but jealousy sets in motion
a chain of events with tragic consequences.

“We are excited to see Kenneth Branagh’s interpretation of this seminal
play and it’s wonderful to be able to experience the high level of
talent in this production in theaters across the U.S.,” said Fathom
Events Vice President of Programming Kymberli Frueh.

Marc Allenby, Director of Distribution at Picturehouse Entertainment
said, “At Picturehouse we are huge admirers of the work of Ken and his
collaborators, and it is with great pride that we look forward to
bringing this exciting new production from the Kenneth Branagh Theatre
Company to cinemas across the US.”
