The Winter's Tale

Even a groundless accusation can tear a family apart, as Leontes, king of Sicily, discovers in one of Shakespeare's most intricate plays. When King Leontes' old friend Polixenes decides to leave after a visit, Leontes asks his wife, Hermione, to persuade him to extend his stay. Possessed with jealousy at her success in doing so, Leontes makes an unfounded allegation, accusing Hermione and Polixenes of having an affair. With his jealousy in the driving seat, tragedy soon besets Leontes and he is forced to realise what it has cost him. But has his realisation come too late? Not suitable for under 14s.
