The Winter’s Tale is Shakespeare’s dazzling fantasy about love’s enduring magic, celebrating springtime’s promise of renewal, rebirth, and second chances. The story unfolds like a medieval folk tale: an irrational king pays dearly and repents after abandoning his wife and infant. We follow the emotional journey of each of them through the long, harsh winter of betrayal to a faraway springtime blossoming with the wondrous possibility of forgiveness and redemption. Along the way, there are both tears and laughter.
Can what’s loved and lost be found? Find out. This is the play containing Shakespeare’s famous stage direction: “Exit, pursued by a bear.” Performances March 9 through April 7, 2018, including a matinee on Easter Sunday.
