Shakespeare wrote The Winter’s Tale after completing his great tragedies, and this rarely performed play introduced the world to a new genre: the “Problem Play.” A delusional and paranoid king tears his family apart, but the struggle for redemption yields flickers of hope. A play that mixes comedy, tragedy, adventure, and fantasy, The Winter’s Tale is unlike any other Shakespearean drama. As usual, Shakespeare explores universal themes such as jealousy, pride and forgiveness.
