Quiz: How well do you know "The Winter's Tale"?

There’s a bear, a jealous husband, a pair of young lovers, a miraculous twist…. hmm, what else?

How well do you know this Shakespeare play? Can you keep track of the characters? Do you have a sense of the plot?

Challenge yourself to take this quiz before you go see Folger Theatre’s new production of The Winter’s Tale, onstage through December 17. (And then take it again after you see the play!)
