Portland Shakespeare Project’s Scholar-in-Residence, Dr. Daniel Pollack-Pelzner, has written an article about the retelling of The Winter’s Tale by contemporary novelist Jeanette Winterson. The article contains a summary of what the play is all about and how Jeanette Winterson fills in gaps to turn the play into a psychoanalytic fable in her novel called, The Gap of Time. He has also written several articles about the Play On Shakespeare translation project for American TheatreThe New Yorker, and Oregon Arts Watch.


Portland Shakespeare Project gratefully acknowledges Play On Shakespeare as a sponsor of The Winter’s Tale, with additional support from The Hitz Foundation, Ronni Lacroute, and all of the donors who have made it possible to bring this full production of The Winter’s Tale to the stage.
