Lowell Davies Festival Stage
The Old Globe
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Daniel Jáquez
“O, she's warm.”
A three week tour of a free Shakespeare production that includes workshops and talkbacks, reaching thousands of people across San Diego.
Rediscover one of Shakespeare’s most enticing and moving romances with the touring Globe for All troupe of actors. King Leontes suspects his wife of infidelity with his best friend from youth, Polixines, the king of Bohemia. After he explodes in rage, only time and forgiveness can bring healing to his family and his wounded land. The Winter’s Tale sweeps from tragedy to comedy—along the way visiting the royal court, dancing shepherds, a most extraordinary statue, and one notoriously hungry bear. Globe for All is the centerpiece of The Old Globe’s commitment to creating public value by making theatre matter to more people. It tours free professional Shakespeare to community-based venues throughout San Diego County.
