The Winter’s Tale
by William Shakespeare
The Winter’s Tale is one of Shakespeare’s most challenging plays, uniting the extremes of tragedy and comedy in a painful, vibrant, redemptive story.
The play begins with the jealous rage of King Leontes, who believes his pregnant wife to have been unfaithful to him with his best friend. Though Leontes’ jealousy spirals into devastating consequences, a glimmer of hope remains.
At our outdoor production in the Timothy Dwight College courtyard, we invite you to enter the antipodean worlds of Sicilia and Bohemia, jump a 16 years’ gap of time, and “stand prepared for more amazement.”
