The director of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 2013 production of The Winter’s Tale. Talking to RSC events co-ordinator Nicky Cox and taking questions from the audience, Bailey explains why she was reluctant to direct The Winter’s Tale and what made her change her mind. She also talks about the differences between Sicilia and Bohemia in the play, and about how she chose her fool. Following its run in Stratford, The Winter’s Tale is going on a UK tour to Milton Keynes, York, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Hull and Stoke. Recorded in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, 29 January 2013.
