This whimsical tale of romance, tragedy, and comedy will take center stage in familiar places for Alley audiences. Set in Texasthis magical tale will be seen through the imaginative eyes of a young, Houstonian child. This play is a sweeping story of wrath and redemption and of lost and then found love. The Resident Acting Company will join together to tell Shakespeare’s beloved fable of hard-won joy and the promise of renewal.

What the critics are saying: 
fresh, clear, modern” – The Independent 
“Clever, fun, and emotionally intimate. Winter may be all but gone, but this beautifully-told tale will capture the imagination and warm the soul.” – Metro Weekly
