The complete and unedited production of Shakespeare's classic play performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1999 at the Barbican. King Leontes of Bohemia comes to believe that his wife Hermione is having an affair with his best friend Polixines, and orders him to be poisoned. Camillo helps Polixines escape instead, and so begins a story of jealousy, false imprisonment and mistaken identity.

'Greg Doran's TRIUMPHANT production'
The Sunday Telegraph

A MASTERFUL version of one of the very greatest plays not to be missed. Sher's Leontes is a performance of overwhelming psychotic intensity. THRILLING.
Daily Mail

One of Sher's most intense, most fully achieved performances...its greatest subtly lies in portraying the side of Leontes that Leontes doesn't know. MAGNIFICENT...Doran and Jones BRILLIANT imagination.'
The Guardian
