Same Sun That Shines, The

Synopsis
Audio podcast. Episode six of a radio serialisation of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. Adapted by Catherine Eaton, directed and rendered into modern English verse by Tracy Young. Part of the ‘Play On Shakespeare’ project to create more contemporary and accessible versions of the texts for performance.

6. As Florizel proclaims his love for Perdita to all the guests at the Sheep Shearing festival (including his father and Camillo who are still in disguise), the Old Shepherd calls for their wedding to take place during the celebration. The unknown guest tries to persuade the young man to hold off until he’s told his father, or at least discussed it with him, but Florizel refuses, saying his father must not know anything about it. Enraged, Polixenes finally removes his disguise and condemns his son, Perdita and her father, threatening to disfigure Perdita and kill the Old Shepherd if either of them come near his son again, and to disown Florizel if he even mentions her name. After his father departs, Florizel insists that he will stay with Perdita. Camillo, however, sees an opportunity to bring Polixenes and Leontes back together and persuades Florizel and Perdita to flee with him back to Sicilia. As Camillo describes the plan, they come upon Autolycus celebrating his pickpocketing success and demand that he change clothes with Florizel so that he won’t be recognised on the road. Perdita agrees to go along with the plan.
