The Public Theater's Mobile Unit, which strengthens community engagement with the arts by bringing free, world-class productions to communities across New York City, journeys through tragedy into comedy with an enchanting new production of The Winter's Tale, directed by Lee Sunday Evans (Porto).
Dire misunderstanding changes the course of destiny when King Leontes becomes convinced that his wife is pregnant with his friend's child. The maligned wife perishes, the accused friend flees, and the cursed infant is left to die alone on the seashore. But from the depths of tragedy, wondrous things can occur. What's lost is found, false identities lead to true love, and the miracle of forgiveness brings new life to the world in one of Shakespeare's most treasured romances.
