About the Play
Obsessed by suspicions of infidelity, King Leontes puts his pregnant wife, Hermione, on trial for her life – coming to his senses only when his actions have cost him both wife and children. But true love can work miracles, and anguish in one generation can unexpectedly lead to happiness in the next.
A bittersweet drama of wrath and regret – culminating in one of the most poignant reunions in all of Shakespeare.
Though suitable for most ages, The Winter’s Tale may not be of interest to pre-teenage children. The plot turns on an unfounded allegation of adultery, and one character is pursued and killed offstage by a bear; however, there are no graphic representations of violence or sexuality. This production uses haze effects.
