Winter's Passage

The 2016 Cerimon House Artist Residency Program presents a staged reading of: 


an adaptation of The Winter's Tale 
by Jennifer Le Blanc

An epically-sized adaptation of Shakespeare's late-career romance The Winter's Tale, focusing on the female story-lines of the characters Paulina, Hermione, and Emelia. With a certain mystery and majesty, the darker corners of the story are illuminated, and the audience is asked to join the characters on a journey through several realms, and then to reach the remarkable Act Five "statue room": there to find the faith and forgiveness it requires to believe in the restoration of many souls, and the reunification of a family.
We are thrilled to welcome Jennifer Le Blanc back to Cerimon House after her wonderful past collaborations: Persuasion, The One You Feed, and Incidents in the Wicked Life of Moll Flanders

Directed by Randall Stuart | Costumes by Sarah Gahagan | photography by Gary Norman
