Directed by Cordelia Monsey and performed by 2nd year students at Oxford School of Drama in the grounds of Asthall Manor, The Winter’s Tale is a story of love, loss and reconciliation.

In a fit of wild and unfounded jealousy, Leontes, the King of Sicily, convinces himself that his wife is pregnant by another man. Leontes’ jealousy turns to tyranny as he proceeds to destroy a lifelong friendship and his entire family.

 Sixteen long years pass, and Winter turns into Spring, as we witness one of the most astonishing theatrical endings ever written.

 This specially abridged garden version of The Winter’s Tale is performed by Second Year students at The Oxford School of Drama.

Booking includes entry to on form at any time during the afternoon. Allow plenty of time to explore this acclaimed exhibition of sculpture in stone.
