Ragged Wing opens our 2016/17 CONCRETE DREAMING with a lean, muscular take on Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale

OCT 21-NOV 12, 2016

An improbable love story

A mismatched band of survivors seek to revive hope as they conjure Shakespeare’s improbable love story, The Winter’s Tale. A fractured kingdom, a leader isolated by guilt and a bond broken and mended; Ragged Wing Ensemble’s muscular adaptation explores questions of jealousy, honor, magic and redemption.
