ABOUT
-----------

How do you pass the years it can take a jealous heart to cool? Spinning a beguiling world out of the 16-year gap at the heart of Shakespeare's infamously bewildering Winter's Tale, this radiant, rueful new play traces the exiled queen, Her, and her attendant Pauly as they navigate life in the wilds of a modern Bohemia. Full of flings, jealousy and privilege gone awry, Her must discover what can be salvaged from the wreckage of betrayal.
