The Winter's Tale, Oregon Shakespeare Festival 

The Winter's Tale       
Presented in English   
Allen Elizabethan Theatre, Ashland, Oregon, USA
June 9 - October 16, 2016

A season of sorrow ends in joy. King Leontes is blessed with a beautiful queen, a son and a baby daughter-to-be, but he loses them all when his mind becomes poisoned by jealousy. During the bleak spiritual winter that follows, faithful friends and a divine oracle slowly lead him back to sanity and a glorious reunion with those he lost. Director Desdemona Chiang will present The Winter’s Tale from an Asian and Asian-American perspective, setting it in dynastic China and America’s Old West.
