Leontes is the man with the perfect life. Powerful, wealthy and surrounded by a loving family he should be content, but instead he is ill at ease with the world around him. Isolated by a destructive jealousy, he lashes out at those closest to him, losing his wife and son and abandoning his daughter in distant Bohemia.

Sixteen years later, having grown up in a pastoral idyll, Leontes' daughter falls in love with a young visitor, setting in motion a chain of events that could eventually reunite their scattered family.

Greg Hicks rejoins the RSC to play Leontes following his appearance as Coriolanus, directed by David Farr, for which he won the Critics' Circle Best Actor Award. Most recently seen on stage in Small Craft Warnings and An Enemy of the People for the Arcola Theatre, Greg's other credits include Don Quixote for West Yorkshire Playhouse, Angels In America at the Lyric Hammersmith and Tamburlaine the Great for Bristol Old Vic.

The role of Hermione will be played by Kelly Hunter, who last appeared with the RSC in the 2001 production of King John and whose other recent credits include Metamorphosis at the Lyric Hammersmith.
