Star-crossed lovers, a banished child, a loyal servant, a notorious bear and more plot twists than Downton Abbey make up the Shakespearean magic of The Winter's Tale. One of Shakespeare's later romances, this comedy-tragedy hybrid tells the story of Leontes, a jealous Sicilian king who suspects his pregnant queen has been unfaithful. He imprisons his wife and exiles their newborn daughter from his kingdom. By the time he discovers the truth, he's lost everything. Years later, a miraculous twist of fate brings with it a chance for redemption and renewal. Catch this Baltimore Shakespeare Factory take on one of the Bard's most intriguing and unusual plays at St. Mary's Community Center.
