King Leontes falsely accuses his heavily pregnant wife of infidelity with his best friend. Consumed by jealousy, he makes a series of catastrophic decisions that tear his family apart and leaves his new born daughter abandoned. Sixteen years later, can time bring healing and reconciliation?

The Winter’s Tale marks the start of our year-long Folio 400th Anniversary celebrations.
