What if in the next generation we return to traditional ways, take care of the earth, and make the world better? In this production directed by Madeline Sayet (Mohegan), an all-Native cast comes together to explore what is passed down and how to restore a broken cycle. Through Shakespeare's text we set off on a journey that asks what the rules of our time are and should be.

Disappointing, Well acted, Simply staged

See it if you enjoy well spoken Shakespeare. The actors make the words clear in sound and meaning.

Don't see it if you expect a Native American adaption. The text is pure Shakespeare. The stage set is a few vertical light bars.

Ambitious, Confusing, Slow

See it if you want to see an ambitious (but flawed) attempt to put a native american and modern spin on a Shakespeare play.

Don't see it if you are expecting to see a traditional Shakespeare play.

Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Refreshing, Romantic

See it if you love Shakespeare and want to see a well acted, well embodied piece where the clowns are brilliant and the original music is superb

Don't see it if you want something edgy or political or you are looking for a fast re-imagined re-cut Shakespeare -- this is charming and great for kids too

Ambitious, Confusing, Disappointing, Slow, A great idea

See it if you're looking for something interesting to do, and you'd like a new view of Shakespeare's Winter's Tale with an all native cast.

Don't see it if you're looking for a great adaptation of a Shakespeare play, the idea is way better than the execution.

Enchanting, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if want to see a new exciting company grounded in the reality of American Indian culture without being a government approved show for tourists.

Don't see it if You are looking for a traditional English version of the work. It is not. The whole attitude is American and American Indian in atmosphere.

Also I love this company. I saw their Macbeth in the parks last summer and ... Read more Read less
