Shakespeare's wistful tale of loss and romance
The Winter's Tale
February 7 to 23, 2020
by William Shakespeare
A romance, a comedy, a fairy tale, two worlds in contrast. These are the elements that have made Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale a delight for audiences for almost 400 years. In Sicilia, King Leontes believes his wife, Hermione, is having an affair with his childhood friend Polixenes. As his unfounded jealousy consumes him, he puts his wife on trial and abandons their newborn child, Perdita, in the wild. But as with all fairy tales, the child survives and, now living in Bohemia, blossoms into a free-spirited young
woman. Here she meets and falls in love with a young man who, unbeknown to her, is son to her father’s former friend. In a magical twist that must be seen to be believed, she might just find the homecoming she’d never expected.
