“Spellbinding”
“The cast is wonderful”
“Kudos to Ragged Wing for leaving me with more intriguing questions than pat answers”

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.
