WINTER

Genre: Drama
by AJ Raath & William Shakespeare, directed by W. Allen Wrede

Winter mixes key scenes from Shakespeare's late romance The Winter's Tale with a contemporary love story. In Shakespeare's play King Leontes accuses Queen Hermione of adultery and despite no evidence to support this, he sends his family, his kingdom and himself into a downward spiral into tragedy. In the modern story, Leonard and Helen fall in love despite his unstable behavior. Panicked after Helen becomes pregnant, Leonard jilts her and their relationship and goes on a drinking binge. He visits an old friend to inquire about his baby -- to find that the baby is a mystery - has the baby even really existed? Where redemption in Shakespeare's romance is a reality, in its contemporary counterpart, redemption may be just a fantasy.
