The Winter’s Tale
Unfolding over the course of 16 years, Shakespeare’s tonally wild Winter’s Tale has room for everything the Bard is known for—laughs, murderous betrayal, unknowingly swapped babies, and star-crossed love. The curtain rises on King Leontes of Sicilia, ever suspicious that he and his wife’s daughter actually belongs to his childhood friend Polixenes, the king of Bohemia. Leontes banishes the child, who grows into a beautiful young shepherdess and catches the eye of a handsome prince—who just happens to be the heir to Bohemia. They plot their escape to Sicilia, a location that sets the stage for reconciliation, a reconnection of friends, and—a rare occurrence in many of Shakespeare’s romances—a possible happy ending.

About Ohio Shakespeare Festival
"If you’ve ever wished that a Shakespeare production could somehow be outfitted with annotations and footnotes, to help you understand what’s going on at every moment, there’s a much easier (and more enjoyable) alternative,” says theater critic Christine Howey. “Just sit in the audience while the Ohio Shakespeare Festival is performing.” The lively and fun characterizations are a fitting approach to the works of the ever-sly Bard.
