Wild jealousy. Unfounded accusations. Death and rebirth. And, of course, “Exeunt, chased by a bear”—one of Shakespeare’s most famous stage directions. Leontes, King of Sicily, suddenly becomes insane with jealousy believing his pregnant wife has been unfaithful to him. Acting upon his rage, he sets a tragedy in motion that will cost him, his family, and his friends dearly.
