One of William Shakespeare’s most famous and funny stage directions — ‘Exit, pursued by a bear’ — appears in Act III of The Winter’s Tale, a romance, comedy and fairy tale that has
entertained audiences for 400 years. The story begins in Sicilia where the king accuses his wife of having an affair with his childhood friend. As his unfounded jealousy consumes him, he
puts his wife on trial and abandons their newborn girl, Perdita, in the wild. But as with all fairy tales, the child survives and, now living in Bohemia, she blossoms into a free-spirited young
woman. It’s there that she meets and falls in love with a young man who may just be the son to her father’s former friend. In a magical twist that must be seen to be believed, she might
just fi nd the homecoming she’d never expected.
