WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Cymbeline revels in the disparate characters and plot-lines that intersect and collide across ancient Britain, Rome, and a pastoral Wales. Innogen's marriage to a young man liked by her father, King Cymbeline, but not approved of as heir to the throne precipitates a series of choices and actions that threaten to unravel the kingdom, the marriage, and family bonds. The weak king, the unprincipled step-mother, the cloddish step son, the loyal servant, the noble but exiled subject, and more, are all highly recognizable characters and yet in Shakespeare's romantic tragicomedy we encounter them in fresh ways. From comedic to gruesome, from supernatural to poignant, we are invited on a perilous journey that culminates in a cascade of reconciliation and revelation.
