THE WINTER'S TALE BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

Genre: Classical
A lively, palpable production directed by John Castro

From the company that recently enlivened William Shakespeare's Measure for Measure ("providing comic relief in the face of dark truth" The Villager) comes an intoxicating production of the Bard's The Winter's Tale. Leontes, King of Sicilia, convinces himself that his pregnant wife Hermione is carrying on an affair with his visiting childhood friend Polixenes, now the King of Bohemia. Leontes' jealousy leads to Hermione's imprisonment, Polixenes' return to Bohemia, and ultimately a test of faith for the residents of both countries. Will Leontes life and love ever be restored? What happens to Hermione and the child she has while in prison?

Be transported to the magical worlds of Sicilia and Bohemia by live original music, composed specifically for this production by Luke Mitchell, and a shifting landscape. As the play moves from Sicilia to Bohemia, the stage undergoes a major transformation, and the audience receives a different perspective on these enchanted lands and the people who reside in them.
