Shakespeare Theatre Free For All "The Winter's Tale"
Published on Monday, August 25, 2014 - 9:46am
Every summer from August 19-31, the Shakespeare Theatre Company presents a series of free Shakespeare performances. This year, their free performance is none other than William Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale--not to be confused with Mark Helprin's novel Winter's Tale. The Winter's Tale is one of Shakespeare's later comedies, and it is a play about love at first sight, disguises, twins, and practical jokes.
Please visit the Shakespeare Theatre Company on their website to view times and enjoy the free performances. In anticipation of the performance, come to your neighborhood library and check out these editions of The Winter's Tale and other related books.
