A tale of jealousy, romance and wonder comes to Preston.Advertisement
Willam Shakespeare’s play The Winter’s Tale is to be performed by third-year acting students at the University of Central Lancashire.
The play follows King Leontes’ jealousy dragging him and his court to the brink of despair.
A baby girl is abandoned to the wild and all seems lost, until she is found by a wandering shepherd.
And so begins a new story, a comic and wonderful journey to redemption.
UCLan are hosting the show, which is open at the public, at the St Peter’s Arts Centre between Wednesday 21 February and Saturday 24 February.
