‘I saw the strangest sight tonight.’
New Bohemia. America. A storm.
A black man finds a white baby abandoned in the night. He gathers her up – light as a star – and decides to take her home.
London. England. After the financial crash. Leo Kaiser knows how to make money but he doesn’t know how to manage the jealousy he feels towards his best friend and his wife. Is the newborn baby even his?
New Bohemia. 17 years later. A boy and a girl are falling in love but there’s a lot they don’t know about who they are and where they come from.
It takes a minute to change a lifetime, and a lifetime to understand the change.
Jeanette Winterson’s cover version of The Winter’s Tale vibrates with echoes of the original but tells a contemporary story where Time itself is a player in a game of high stakes that will either end in tragedy or forgiveness. It shows us that however far we have been separated, whatever is lost shall be found.
The Gap of Time is the first title in the Hogarth Shakespeare series: this major international project will see Shakespeare’s plays reimagined by some of today’s bestselling and most celebrated writers.
