The Winter's Tale begins in the icy, elegant land of Sicilia. King Leontes fears his wife has been sleeping with his best friend. And when her alleged lover runs away before the King can kill him, Leontes lets loose his rage upon his Queen--setting a course that could destroy his kingdom. But, just as things look bleakest, hope for Sicilia's future floats ashore in Bohemia, landing in a country of shepherds and scoundrels, blender drinks and beach parties. As winter melts away into spring, can time thaw anger and sorrow? Can the gravest of sinners earn forgiveness and redemption?
