THE WINTER'S TALE

Genre: Classical
by William Shakespeare; Diected by John Basil

American Globe Theatre, New York City's longest-running classical theatre, presents The Winter's Tale. When King Leontes accuses his wife of adultery, his rabid jealousy results in the division of his family, as wife and children are lost to grief and abandonment. Sixteen years pass before his daughter, lost in the country of Bohemia, begins a romantic journey that will heal her family's wounds. "The Winter's Tale" is a play about healing separation in relationships and within one's self-- a play that embodies Shakespeare's vision of love in extreme - love that inflames and enrages; love that tames and heals. John Basil, published author of Will Power: How to Act Shakespeare in 21 Days, directs the main stage show of American Globe Theatre.
