The Winter's Tale by William Shakespeare
2 to 9 December 2017

The haunting tale of jealousy, death, young love and reconciliation.

Hermione, queen to King Leontes, is tried for adultery, found guilty and reported dead, and the old friendship of two kings is torn apart by jealousy and suspicion. Leontes, discovering his wife’s innocence, is inconsolable with guilt and grief. But art, time and providence can draw regeneration from his remorse.
