The Winter's Tale

May 4 - June 9, 2019 In the Albert

“No modern American director is better at making a play’s iconic moments pop with fresh irreverence” (Chicago Tribune)

A jealous king accuses his wife of infidelity, setting off a calamitous series of events. But what begins as tragedy evolves, unexpectedly, into a fantastical journey—from wrath to redemption to reconciliation. Following his celebrated productions of King Lear and Measure for Measure, Robert Falls reimagines one of Shakespeare’s most wildly theatrical tales.
