“A sad tale's best for winter: I have one of sprites and goblins.”
The Winter's Tale is a devastating tragedy, a light comedy, and an emotionally complex story. It's a reflection on mortality and a celebration of new life. Both terrifying and hilarious, it is a tale of magic and loss. In short, it's as filled with as many improbable and unpredictable shifts as is the average human life; especially the case when that life has been lived long enough. Written toward the tail end of Shakespeare’s career, it's plain to see that it was crafted by a soul who had done a fair amount of living. Join us for our 29th Annual Free Shakespeare in the Park production this summer for The Winter's Tale. And the irony of the title juxtaposed with the season we present it, we assure you, is fully intentional. Come see this rarely performed gem and find out why.
