Subject:        Paulina

Most Shakespeareans recognize that the plot of Winter's Tale is quite
close to the plots of Much Ado and of Othello. That being the case,
perhaps Paulina is married because Beatrice and Emilia are married.

Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1326 Re: Camillo and Paulina

Some years ago I directed a production of The Winter's Tale.  The actors
playing Leontes and Paulina were husband and wife.  During the Summer
"Paulina" had an affair with the actor playing Camillo.  "Leontes"
discovered this near the end of the run.  Although he felt like quitting
the production, he behaved professionally and stayed on. And as any
actor would, he tried to use the experience to enhance his performance.
The results were powerful but gruesome. So were the last few moments of
the play when he had to join the hands of "Camillo" and "Paulina."

There are times when acting can be like a crucifixion.
