By WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Directed by ARIN ARBUS

March 13 – April 15, 2018

In her productions for TFANA of Othello, King Lear, Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, and Strindberg’s The Father, Arin Arbus (2017 OBIE Award, The Skin of Our Teeth), brilliantly explored marriage, jealousy, and family. Now, for the first time, she stages Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale, a haunting late romance that is half-tragedy, half-comedy. A tyrant’s accusations of infidelity, a shattered family and marriage, miraculous rescue of children, a thief so clever we take his side, Time personified, a statue magically sprung to life, and, not to forget, a ferocious bear: only Shakespeare could make a story as fantastically eventful and improbable into cohesive, soul-stirring drama.
