"All of us have talismanic texts that we have carried around and that carry us around. I have worked with The Winterís Tale in many disguises for many years... And I love cover versionsí "The Winterís Tale is one of Shakespeare's Ďlate playsí. 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.
