Theatre in the Forest: The Winter's Tale

At first I couldn't work out the connection between Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale and the fairytale image presented above, other than the simple fact that this particular production takes place in a forest, which is a rather dubious link. Then I remembered that The Winter's Tale is the source of Shakespeare's most famously odd stage direction: "Exit, pursued by a bear," which I suppose explains the LRRH-meets-Goldilocks poster to some degree.

A larger picture, from a photograph taken by yours truly, is presented below.

This production of The Winter's Tale is by the Red Rose Chain Film & Theatre Company.
