Shakespeare Unbard, Episode 34: Exits Hurriedly, Pursued by The Winter's Tale

"A sad tale's best for winter" asserts Mamillius, the doomed prince of Bohemia, and rarely has a Shakespearian character summarized his own story so well. His words are proved true as we watch The Winter's Tale, a bittersweet bit of theatre that is one of the most unique Shakespeare ever devised.


In this episode you'll hear excerpts and clips from:

  • The Winter's Tale. Arkangel. 2006

  • Shakespeare, William. The Winter's Tale. The Riverside Shakespeare, Houghton and Mifflin, 1974.
