About this show

Michael Bogdanov directs The Winter's Tale, William Shakespeare's play of vengeance, forgiveness and the resilience of the human spirit. Breaching all laws of nature, man and oracle, King Leontes suspects his queen of adultery, orders her imprisoned, his boyhood companion slain, and his newborn daughter cast out to the wild. Death hides from Leontes what is closest to his heart, until time can help recover what is lost. In this mythic land the seasons' rhythms find echoes in the journeys of two families, as death and grief give way to life and love. There are no performances on 4/8, 4/10, 4/22, and 5/6. There is an additional Sunday 7:30 p.m. performance on 4/13 and no performance scheduled for 5/18.
