Henry V and The Winter's Tale
In 2011-12 we will be touring a brand new production of Henry V and a re-visiting of our acclaimed 2005 production of The Winter's Tale, in the UK and internationally.
Henry V is one of the greatest tales in English folklore about a British warrior. It is set in a time when nationalism is at its most dangerous and exciting. As increasing numbers of British servicemen and women are seeing active service, Propeller brings its own unique take on one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays. Thrilling and deeply moving, Henry V marks the beginning of a journey that takes us from the corridors of Westminster to the fields of France in an evening of unforgettable power.
The Winter’s Tale is a tragic fairytale which tells the mysterious and extraordinary story of a man consumed by an inexplicable jealousy that destroys his family, his kingdom and himself. Wracked by guilt, Leontes sets off a chain reaction of events that leads to a miraculous climax and the chance of redemption. This is a re-visiting of Propeller’s highly acclaimed 2005 production.
Throughout the tour, Propeller will be supporting Lifeworks, which is a charity based in devon. Lifeworks provides new opportunities for children with disabilities to lead full active and happy lives. Propeller sing and perform during the interval of Henry V to raise money for the charity.
