Gary Shelford opens The Winter’s Tale tonight, the second production in Propeller’s UK and International tour. Alongside a brand new production of Henry V, The Winter’s Tale is a revisit of Propeller’s highly acclaimed 2005 production.

Propeller is an all-male Shakespeare company, run by Artistic Director Edward Hall, which seeks to find a more engaging way of expressing Shakespeare and to more completely explore the relationship between text and performance. Mixing a rigorous approach to the text with a modern physical aesthetic, they have been influenced by mask work, animation and classic and modern film and music from all ages.

Propeller has toured internationally to Australia, China, Spain, Mexico, The Philippines, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Cyprus, Ireland, Tokyo, Gdansk, Germany, Italy, Malta, Hong Kong and the U.S.A.
