What can be better than to spend a summer evening under the stars enjoying a picnic and being entertained by acclaimed professional actors presenting sparkling, fresh Shakespeare? All you have to do is bring a rug, picnic chairs, and your own picnic hamper (leaving the glass and metal utensils and cutlery at home).
Today Rainbow Shakespeare (in their 11th season) launch one of two acts prepared for this summer at the Greenwich Royal Observatory Gardens. 'The Winter's Tale' tells of the devastating effect that mad jealousy has on the lives of two royal families. And how time, love, laughter and forgiveness brings about reconciliation and hope for the future. It is an exciting tale, funny and compelling that the whole family can enjoy.
