A Midwinter's Tale is a delightful romantic comedy that celebrates the acting profession with all its passion, humor, drama, naivety, and zest for life. Meet Joe Harper, an out-of-work English actor who salvages his pride by mounting a low-budget production of "Hamlet". His auditions summon from the woodwork a most unpromising selection of misfits and has-beens. He signs up a cast of six to play the twenty-four roles in Shakespeare's greatest play. And have it ready in three weeks. Just in time for... Christmas?!?
