WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Edward Hall directs The Winter's Tale, by William Shakespeare in this Watermill Theatre (UK) production by Propeller. Classified as a comedy, The Winter's Tale is perhaps best described as a fairy tale for grownups with its untrusting king, banished infant princess, man-eating bear, statues coming to life, and more. Its characters are complex and conflicted. Its themes are grand, dealing with jealousy, redemption, and reconciliation. And though it all ends relatively well, enough bad things occur to give the work a bittersweet twist. As realized by this all-male cast, the play takes on a refreshing levity while revealing the stunning cruelty at its core.
