A play, music, a garden party, a feast, and a ferry crossing (for the Inishowen shows)! An Grianán Theatre and Parrabbola (UK) present Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale as an exciting, large scale, immersive production in both Donegal and Derry, crossing the borders, the traditions and the waters of the north west. Ultimately it explores conflict, reconciliation and borders. Two Kingdoms, Sicilia and Bohemia divided by an ocean; two kings, raised together, but at odds without reason, a wronged queen; a lost princess, prison sentences, tragic deaths, bears and ocean voyages.
