Oyez! Oyez! Oyez! The Supreme Court of Sicily is now in session—VIRTUALLY! Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale has more royal scandals than four seasons of The Crown: accusations of adultery, jealous spouses, feigned deaths, a potential war with former allies, a hungry bear, and a statue brought to life. Focusing on the royal rift between King Leontes and Queen Hermione of Sicily, this year’s Mock Trial finds the Queen’s frenemy Paulina paying out of pocket after keeping the monarchs separated for sixteen years. Adopting an appellate-court format, Paulina will appeal the decision of the court, claiming piety for Apollo caused her to imprison the Queen and offer her alternative facts about the state of the royal marriage.
