Shakespeare’s late romance examines the universal themes of redemption and forgiveness, family reunions, destruction of trust through suspicion, the unintended consequences of self-involvement, the magic of the theater, and the renewal of life through an awakening to love. In addition to reading and discussing the play, we will view video performances of various productions to deepen our appreciation of Shakespeare’s genius.
