The Winter's Tale
by William Shakespeare
Presented by UpstART and The Wright Opera House. A No Holds Bard production.
Raging jealousy destroys a marriage, a family, a friendship, and two kingdoms. What can resurrect them? The magic of love and compassion. Shakespeare's wild romantic comedy of redemption performed with the energy, intensity, and delight that Shakespeare intended...
When UpstART does Shakespeare, it’s No Holds Bard
Fun, interactive, entertainments the whole family will enjoy.
Through close examination of his original, unedited texts, and exploration of the original performance conditions of Shakespeare’s company, No Holds Bard performs Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before: the way Shakespeare’s own actors did it. We perform in general light, with minimal sets, with great, fast-paced, energetic acting and lots of audience interaction.
Our shows are extremely physical, totally accessible, often wild community events: more like a great championship sports game than a fusty theater production. Shakespeare’s audiences didn’t have to be English Ph.D.’s to have a great time at his plays. They were popular entertainments; the Globe was the multiplex of his day.
Thanks for playing with us today!
