“Awake your faith…”
A tribute to the magic of story-telling, Shakespeare’s late, great romance is an exhilarating journey that brings us to Sicilia and Bohemia and returns us safely home once more. Convinced of his queen’s unfaithfulness, King Leontes of Sicilia imprisons her, exiles his newborn daughter, and schemes to have his closest friend, King Polixenes murdered. With the passage of time comes realization, revelation, and redemption—as well as the growing romance between the children of both kings. Incorporating a variety of inspired theatrical techniques, this production of The Winter’s Tale presents a rich and emotional story of human folly, hope, and resurrection filled with unexpected surprises. The cast features Michael Tisdale as Leontes, Katie deBuys as Hermione, Kimberly Gilbert as Autolycus, and Eric Hissom as the Storyteller. Directed by Aaron Posner.
