The Winter’s Tale is one of my favourite Shakespeare plays. It’s not quite a ‘late bloomer’ play but it’s not so far off. Having been stuck in my sick bed, I gave some thought to what the play might look like if the hinge scene where Antigonus abandons the baby Perdita and she is rescued by shepherds, was written differently. Shakespeare is full of dramatic possibility: you often really don’t know which way things might go. Adoption dramas are the closest modern equivalent we have to this play.
