Oberlin Summer Theater Festival (OSTF) will present The Winter’s Tale, William Shakespeare’s timeless romance of obsession and redemption. The play begins as an intense drama, following the paranoid jealousy and unjust actions of King Leontes against his wife, Hermoine, and best friend Polixenes.
Midway, the play jumps time, place, and genre to become a hilarious pastoral comedy centered on the secret romance of their children, which ultimately brings the two plots full circle to a moving ending.
The Winter’s Tale is one of three classical productions being presented in rotating repertory during this year’s theater festival, which runs though July 30.
This stage adaptation is recommended for ages 12 and older.
