The Island in Winter,
or La Isla en Invierno
a world premiere adaptation based on
The Winter's Tale by William Shakespeare
adapted by Carlos-Zenen Trujillo
directed by Scott Palmer
Our inaugural Problem Play Project production is a remarkable new vision of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale in a bilingual world premiere adaptation! The Bard's spellbinding tale of jealousy, prophecy, magic, and redemption, reworked by Hillsboro-native Carlos-Zenen Trujillo, transports the action away from Sicilia and Bohemia to Miami and Havana.
Bringing Latin-American magical realism to play in one of Shakespeare's most compelling (and magical) tales, The Island in Winter is the first show in a three-year project that asks emerging playwrights of color to re-imagine Shakespeare's Problem Plays with a diversity and equity lens.
