(Eric Reid as Leontes, Regina Morones as Hermione & Cameron Payne as Mamillius)
The Winter's Tale explores the 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 AASC, L. Peter Callendar, 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, romantic and unforgettable endings to life.
