Directed by Pam MacKinnon

Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon directs The Winter’s Tale, Shakespeare’s masterpiece on tyranny, jealousy, and redemption. The King of Sicilia, Leontes, recklessly acts on his false suspicion that his wife Hermione is unfaithful. Defying his friends, advisors, and even the gods, Leontes abandons his newborn daughter and throws Hermione in jail, ripping families and kingdoms apart. Can hope emerge from this long winter of destruction and despair? Is redemption possible, and what will it take? And what really happened to Leontes’s wife and daughter?

The Winter’s Tale spans sixteen years, two nations, and two generations, and chronicles the cycle of betrayal, repentance, and reconciliation.
