The 2019 Live Cinema Series continues at Gesa Power House Theatre with an encore screening of Kenneth Branagh’s award-winning production of The Winter’s Tale on Wednesday, December 4 at 6:00 p.m. This production was filmed live in 2015 at The Garrick Theatre in London.
King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences.
Shakespeare’s timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption was reimagined in a production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh. The production featured a remarkable group of actors, including Judi Dench as Paulina and Kenneth Branagh as Leontes, alongside Tom Bateman (Florizel), Jessie Buckley (Perdita), Hadley Fraser (Polixenes), and Miranda Raison (Hermione).
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. The Live Cinema Series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.
This screening has an approximate runtime of 3 hours. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) will go on sale to the public on Monday, September 9, online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. For group ticket sales, please call 509-876-1662.
