In June, STAG were proud to introduce something a bit different for us all. The Cygnet Theatre is a unique drama school and theatre company based in Exeter. It brought its exciting young talent to Shute Church as part of its tour of Devon. The talented cast brought a refreshing new dynamic to a play much beloved by STAG members. The Winter’s Tale was last performed by STAG in 1997 at the church.
At Leontes’ request, Hermione begs Polixenes to extend his stay. Observing her persuasive powers, Leontes sees a spark of affection between his wife and his friend. Consumed by jealousy, Leontes destroys his family and seeks to kill his friend. However, Time and Reason heal deep wounds and True Love’s patience triumphs over betrayal and despair.
Following our play reading season’s theme, the plays of J.B. Priestley, a choice for STAG's Autumn play has been made. Heather White will be directing the above classic. We welcome actors, backstage help and volunteers for Front of House. More information is available here:
