In Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, King Leontes of Sicilia suffers a sudden, violent fit of jealousy, the repercussions of which are truly tragic: broken friendships, the deaths of family members, and the abandonment of the infant princess on the coast of Bohemia. But all is not lost: sixteen years later, the princess is ultimately reunited with her family in a final act that emphasizes the power of art to facilitate the miracles of restoration and forgiveness.

Speaking Shakespeare is free and open to the public.

A copy of the play will be provided to each student, faculty, or staff member attending.
