    Summer Vacation to Michaelmas Week 0

    Leontes is a jealous man and suspects his queen, Hermione, of adultery with his brother. His persecution kills her and their son. Their infant daughter is sent into exile in Bohemia and named Perdita: she is discovered by a mad hatter who raises her as his own. Sixteen years later Perdita is the belle of Bohemia: she is loved by Florizel and adored by bumpkins. Events conspire to bring together Leontes' stagnant court and the vibrant but dangerous wonderland of Bohemia and a kind of healing is achieved. These fantastical worlds will be realised with design inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice. A cast of eight will portray upwards of twenty characters in a self-consciously theatrical production, physically building new worlds with their bodies. Exit, pursued by a teddy bear.
