Comedy, tragedy and fantasy combine in Shakespeare’s bittersweet romance The Winter’s Tale which we present in a vibrant new outdoor production this July.
This immersive experience will feature live music, a garden party, food and for our Inishowen performances even a ferry crossing!
Our Letterkenny performances will take place in Ballymacool Town Park (Fri 19 & Sat 20 July) while our Inishowen performances (Tues 23 & Wed 24 July) will take place either side of the Foyle with the show including a ferry ride from Greencastle to Magilligan and back.
