“Awake Your Faith”

Peace in the exotic kingdoms of Sicilia and Bohemia is ruptured by jealousy. Convinced of his wife’s unfaithfulness, with his friend Polixenes, Leontes plots murder, subjects Hermione, great with child, to public ridicule, and then casts out his baby daughter. With the passage of time comes realization, revelation, and redemption—and a new union between the families. This fanciful romance is testament to Shakespeare’s ability to weave a spellbinding story. 

Children under the age of four are not permitted in the theater. Every person entering the theatre must have a ticket.
