Adapted by renowned author and Shakespeare scholar Leon Garfield, in collaboration with leading academic lights, these beautiful, dramatic and rewarding tales are masterly abridged renditions of the classic texts, fully faithful to the narrative and language that makes Shakespeare the most loved and respected playwright history has ever produced.

A Winters Tale
Exquisitely sculpted and lifelike puppets perform this touching tale of rage, remorse and forgiveness. The King's fit of temper results in the death of his wife Hermione and young son and his baby daughter Perdita ia banished. Sixteen years later, intervention of humbler mortals, the Gods allow him to find his daughter restore Hermione to life.

The warmth of the play's Mediterranean setting contrasts with the coldness of Iago's heart, as he relentlessly turns his noble master, Othello, against his beautiful and innocent love, Desdemona. All the emotional intensity of Shakespeare's study of jealousy is conveyed by stark and vivid cel animation.
