Zoe Rainey plays Emilia in Kenneth Branagh’s The Winter’s Tale at the Garrick Theatre, which has its press performance today, back-to-back with Harlequinade in which Zoe also appears.
A Winter’s Tale, Shakespeareʼs timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption, is reimagined in a new production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, following their triumphant staging of Macbeth in Manchester and Manhattan.
Harlequinade follows a classical theatre company whose intrigues and dalliances are surprisingly revealed with increasingly calamitous consequences in an affectionate celebration of the lunatic art of putting on a play.
Zoe joins a remarkable group of actors, led by Judi Dench, Kenneth Branagh and Zoë Wanamaker.Overview
