This will be Top Dog Theatre's 14th Open Air Summer Shakespeare production, performed on the beautiful Mona Vale Lawn.
Written toward the end of William Shakespeare’s theatrical career, The Winter’s Tale (1609-1611) is a story of loss and redemption.
One of Shakespeare's so-called 'romances', this year's offering of The Winter's Tale features love, deceit, jealousy, disguises and declarations, and of course, a bear.
Polixenes, King of Bohemia, has been on a lengthy visit to the court of his childhood friend, Leontes, King of Sicilia, and his wife, Queen Hermione. Suddenly, Leontes becomes convinced that his heavily pregnant wife has been having an affair with Polixenes. From there, things go from bad to worse, only there's a little twist at the end to send you home smiling.
