In Sicily two kings, Leontes and Polixenes are celebrating their old friendship. But Leontes' jealousy soon ruins everything: the devoted wife, the accused friend. The story is taken up again after 16 years, in Boemia; more precisely, a new story begins. But can the elapsed time serve to cure the old wound, to assimilate the conscience, or does the story simply repeat? "The romantic play is not holy scripture. So the symbolised story of the man has no beginning, no end; it floats in a permanent dead-point. The whole is just interlude. Between something and something, nothing and nothing, the same and the same. Like life - if we make the essential disappear" - says Istvan Geher in his Shakespeare Reader.
