Event Description

Free Shakespeare returns to Iowa City with The Winter's Tale, directed by Adam Knight and featuring a cast of twelve!

“It is required you do awake your faith…”

Considered one of Shakespeare's greatest plays, The Winter’s Tale is a story of rebirth and redemption, pivoting from comedy to tragedy and back again. Two kingdoms bonded in friendship, riven by jealousy. King Leontes rules the cold halls of Sicilia with an increasingly tyrannical bent. Can the whitsuntide feasts of Bohemia and the promise of a new generation bring about the healing so desperately needed? Time will tell.
