We’re thrilled to host Cheek by Jowl’s fun-packed, crystal clear version of one of Shakespeare’s most problematic plays, thanks to this multi-camera livestream from the Barbican. It’ll be broadcast on 19th April, at 7.30pm GMT, and will be available on Exeunt until midnight on 7th May.

Cheek by Jowl have taken a bold, democratic step by making The Winter’s Tale available for free, on media outlets across the world – with international partners including The Barbican, The Space, Arts Council England, the BBC, Spain’s El País, France’s Télérama and Sydney Morning Herald, and subtitles in English and French. Respond to the performance (or see what everyone else is making of it) on Twitter using #TheWintersTaleLive

We’ll be updating this page with some of the best Twitter responses, as they happen.
