The Winter's Tale
The Winter's Tale explores the unsteady, unsettling, poisonous realm of jealousy and distrust as a childhood friendship is irrevocably torn apart by a grievous misunderstanding.
King Leontes of Sicilia accuses his pregnant wife, Hermione, of infidelity with best friend and fellow King of neighboring Bohemia, Polixenes.
His rage and misguided tyranny results in the plot to have the King of Bohemia killed, banish the newborn baby girl, imprison his innocent wife, and turn his stunned staff and nation against him. Directed by Artistic Director of African-American Shakespeare Company, L. Peter Callender, this study of love, jealousy, tyranny and ultimate forgiveness will bring all the complicated plot twists, memorable characters and one of Shakespeare's most magical and romantic and unforgettable endings to life.

THE WINTER'S TALE is a THEATRE BAY AREA AWARDS RECOMMENDED PRODUCTION!
"The Winters Tale is story of repentance and forgiveness, even renewal. But I cannot not help but think that politically, it comes off as timely. If only every nation had a Delphic Oracle to correct the lies, rumors, and alternate truths of misguided leaders.
The African-American Shakespeare Company is always interesting. Come see this production and support a most worthy San Francisco arts organization."
