The Winter's Tale

For this spring's Shakespeare workshop, the SDHL thespians tackled one of Shakespeare's later works, The Winter's Tale.

Serena played the role of King of Sicilia, Leontes, whose jealousy caused him to lose his wife Hermione and child Perdita. It was a dramatic play with a bear, a Shepherd, some sheep, a Clown, and a Bohemian dance thrown into the mix. Intriguing and very entertaining!

Act II, Scene I: Leontes accuses Hermione of adultery and treason:

Act II, Scene I: Leontes reveals that he has sent messengers to the oracle of Apollo for confirmation of Hermione's unfaithfulness:

Act V, Scene III: Leontes' final speech as all is pardoned and reconciled, his "ill suspicion" nullified.  Or is it...?
