Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale

Adapted and Directed by Kevin Theis

“It is required you do awake your faith…”
Paulina, Act V, iii

The Winter’s Tale is the Romance play that plunges most deeply into tragedy before finding joy and redemption. A once-beloved king, Leontes, begins to veer toward autocratic, tyrannical rule and is blinded by a self-deluding jealousy. After accusing his faithful queen of infidelity with his best friend and nearly destroying his family and his kingdom, the Delphic oracle proclaims that “the king shall live without an heir if that which is lost be not found.” This is a story that shows us miracles and mercy and joyously brings that which is “dead” back to life.

This production would not be possible without the generosity of our season sponsors Nancy Clark and Paula & Ed Goedert
