The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare

March 5 - March 8

The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare

March 5-7,11-14 at 7pm

March 8 at 2pm

Join us at our 2020 CDTPS mainstage show, The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare directed by Graham Abbey.

One of Shakespeare’s late romances, The Winter’s Tale is a classic story of destructive jealousy and the endearing power of faith, set against a fairy tale backdrop of magic, illusion, and true love. In this reimagined production by this year’s graduating class, eight actors weave a tale of 16 characters, between two worlds, and across 16 years. Leontes, Queen of Sicilia accuses her wife Hermione of an infidelity with her oldest friend Polixenes. The fallout of this accusation takes us 16 years into the future to the shores of the mythical Bohemia, complete with fairy gold and bears, and launches us on an unimaginable journey of rebirth, redemption and forgiveness.
