About The Winter's Tale

Suspicious that his wife Hermione has been unfaithful, King Leontes of Sicilia imprisons the queen, orders the death of her suspected lover, and banishes his own newborn daughter. But callous hearts are redeemed—and broken ones mended—when the abandoned orphan falls in love with a Bohemian prince. The Winter's Tale leaps from darkest tragedy to lighthearted romance and a truly magical conclusion.

OBIE Award-winning Resident Director Liz Diamond, whose recent productions at Yale Rep include the acclaimed American premiere of Happy Now? by Lucinda Coxon, stages the Bard's surprising tale of blinding jealousy and forgiveness.
