WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

When Shakespeare reached the end of his playwrighting career, he increasingly placed the power of transformation into the hands and mouths of his female characters. Actions of jealousy, murder, and theft are resolved through magical means, and in The Winter's Tale the result is a mesmerizing rebirth of both body and soul. The baby Perdita, though tossed from her home, matures to an age of love and reason as she redeems her father Leontes' mad jealousy and witnesses a human regeneration still wonderous on today's stage.
