Winter’s Tales with Penelope Wilton
Stories from Winnie-the-Pooh and House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne
Olivier Award winning actress Penelope Wilton takes to the stage with select stories of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne.
Dame Penelope was born in Scarborough and has worked extensively for over 50 years in the classical theatre, film and television.
Her film career includes roles in The BFG, The French Lieutenant’s Woman, Calendar Girls and Shaun of the Dead.
Her television acting career included several major TV roles starring opposite Richard Briers in Ever Decreasing Circles, playing Homily in The Borrowers and, more recently, for her role as Isobel Crawley in the ITV drama Downton Abbey.
In 2015 Penelope won an Olivier Award for her performance in Taken at Midnight.
Winnie-the-Pooh may be a bear of very little brain, but thanks to his friends Piglet, Eeyore and, of course, Christopher Robin, he’s never far from an adventure. In this story Pooh gets into a tight place, nearly catches a Woozle and heads off on an ‘expotition’ to the North Pole with the other animals.
House at Pooh Corner
This is the second classic children’s story by A.A. Milne about Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood. In this volume Pooh meets the irrepressible Tigger for the first time, learns to play Poohsticks and sets a trap for a Heffalump.
