The Winter's Tale is a play by William Shakespeare, originally published in the First Folio of 1623. Although it was grouped among the comedies, some modern editors have relabelled the play as one of Shakespeare's late romances. Some critics consider it to be one of Shakespeare's problem plays, because the first three acts are filled with intense psychological drama, while the last two acts are comedic and supply a happy ending.

Suspicious King Leontes of Sicily accuses his pregnant wife Hermione of having an affair with his best friend, Polixenes, the King of Bohemia. Enraged at the alleged betrayal, he orders Polixenes poisoned, Hermione imprisoned, and her newborn daughter banished, leaving him a broken man. Sixteen years later, Perdita, the adopted daughter of a shepherd, falls in love with young Prince Florizel, much to the dismay of the boy’s father, Polixenes. He disapproves of the girl and her lowly status and orders his son to forget her. Instead, the young lovers escape in disguise and head for Sicily. There, the storylines of Leontes, Hermione, Polixenes, Perdita and Florizel finally come together. William Shakespeare’s "The Winter’s Tale" is filled with improbabilities, telling a story of obsession and redemption. Fans of "Mamma Mia" will enjoy the humorous misunderstandings and mistaken identities that take the characters on a journey of self-discovery.

"All of us have talismanic texts that we have carried around and that carry us around. I have worked with The Winter's Tale in many disguises for many years.... And I love cover versions." Jeanette Winterson The Winter's Tale is one of Shakespeare's “late plays”. It tells the story of Leontes, King of Sicily, whose insane jealousy results in the banishment of his baby daughter, Perdita, from the kingdom and then the death of his beautiful wife, Hermione. Perdita is brought up by a shepherd on the Bohemian coast, but through a series of miraculous events, father and daughter, and eventually mother too, are reunited. In Jeanette Winterson's retelling we move from London, a city reeling after the 2008 financial crash, to a storm-ravaged city in the US called New Bohemia. Her story is one of childhood friendship, money, status, video games and the elliptical nature of time. It tells in a hyper-modern way, full of energy and beauty, of the consuming power of jealousy on the one hand, and love, redemption and a lost child on the other.
