A Winter's Tale, not one of the Bards best, but was a really great production in the hands of the Montford Park Players and Warren Wilson. Young fresh takes on Shakespeare. The price is a bargain/

Saw the Montford Park Players in 1976 and was amazed. Unbelieveably I met Butch Guice of commic book fame and Lewis Grizzard, deceased, a famous hummorist for the Atlanta Journal.
