The Winter's Tale
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Richard DiPrima
Late in his career, Shakespeare created his great Romances. They weren't tragedies - but they weren't exactly light comedies either. Instead, he took problems that would have caused tragedy in his earlier plays and examined what might have happened if these problems could be corrected. He infused these plays with wonder, sometimes with magic, and with some of the most splendid poetry in the English language.
