Written toward the end of William Shakespeare’s career, The Winter’s Tale is a story of folly, forgiveness and redemption. It begins when Leontes, King of Sicily, destroys his family and his oldest friendship in a fit of jealous rage that transforms him into a tyrant. What follows is a play unique among Shakespeare’s work. The Winter’s Tale is part tragedy, part comedy, and concludes with perhaps the most controversial ending ever penned by the Bard.
