Renowned author and Shakespeare scholar Leon Garfield adapts two of the playwright's works into modern day animations. The adaptations use a variety of animation techniques and feature the vocal talents of Jenny Agutter, Michael Kitchen and Philip Franks. 'A Winter's Tale' is a light-hearted comedy about two childhood friends. Both now kings of nations, the friends' paths cross over one's suspicion that his wife is being more than hospitable to his visiting neighbour. 'Othello' is a domestic tragedy telling the story of Othello (Colin McFarlane)'s flighty wife Desdemona (Sian Thomas) whom he suspects may be having an affair with his lieutenant Cassio (Franks).
