Program Description

Event Details

Shakespeare's late-career comedy, A Winter's Tale, is called one of his "problem plays".  This is because the first half of the play is a tense tragic plot driven by false suspicion, while the second half is comedic, as well providing a bittersweet happy ending for those who survived the first half of the story.  This drama also involves a surprising miraculous event at the end.  Overall, it is a psychologically compelling piece with many thrilling twists of plot and striking characters.
