The Winter's Tale is Shakespeare's magical play about jealousy, atonement, resilience, honor, rebirth, and, of course, love. The tale is joyful and dark, told with honest humor and heart that brings audiences from laughter to tears. Playwright Tracy Young's modern verse translation for Plan On Shakespeare makes it very accessible, and the talented ensemble and direction by Michael Mendelson bring Shakespeare's compelling tale to life.
