THE CHAMELEON PLAYERS:
When Leontes, the King of Sicilia, comes to believe that his wife Hermione is having an adulterous affair with his best friend Polixenes, he orders Camillo, his trusted advisor, to poison him and so starts a chain of extraordinary events, twists and surprises that takes place over a period of 16 years. By turns dramatic, funny, heart-breaking and, ultimately, uplifting, this late classic by Shakespeare is a wonderful night out.
