a short film adaptation of a William Shakespeare Play

based on 'The Winter's Tale'



Directed by Sean Cronin


'No Barricado for a Belly!' is a short-film monologue based on the fabulous William Shakespeare play 'The Winter's Tale'.

'Sir Smile' the alter-ego persona of Leontes takes hold, as protagonist turns to antagonist, and continues to plot against his foes, to 'sluice' their wives and 'fish' in their ponds. How fortunate that the world has rich pickings!
