The Winter's Tale
The Winter's Tale marks the halfway point of the Porters' exploration of Shakespeare's
canon, it being their 19th production out of the Bard's accepted 38. Fully embracing the
fairy tale quality of Shakespeare's story of jealousy and the redemptive power of love (and an
infamous bear), this production will be staged quite literally between the pages of a book as
we set out to enchant even the most stone-hearted of theatergoers.
The Winter's Tale will star Porters' Associate Artistic Director Thomas Bigley as Leontes, last
seen as Pistol in our Henry V, and as the title role of our Timon of Athens (the first LA
production of the piece in 15 years); The Winter's Tale will mark Resident Artist Jesse James
Thomas' first outing as a director for The Porters, having previously Assistant Directed The
Merry Wives of Windsor in 2012. This production will also feature a bear.
There will not be a performance on Halloween night (Friday, October 31st).
