In a fit of groundless jealousy, Leontes wrecks his marriage, defies the gods, destroys his family and ruins himself. As the years roll around, a new generation flee their own country and take refuge in Sicilia. Unknowingly they bring with them the key to the past, present and future... A 'winter's tale' is a fantasy, and The Winter's Tale is Shakespeare's great play of the irrational and inexplicable. The play's uncontrollable emotions - rage, love, grief and forgiveness - range across gender, country, class and age. Its universe is full of monsters, gods and natural disasters, and its colossal sweep takes us from stifling courts to unbuttoned festivals.
