About this show

Based on legends about early Celtic kings, Cymbeline is one of Shakespeare's most fantastical creations--familiar Shakespearean themes of jealousy and innocence wronged are joined with divine intervention from the gods. A lovely princess, an evil queen, a misguided king and a thoroughly rotten clown people this fairy tale-like story of life, and love, renewed. One of Shakespeare's charming romances, this production of Cymbeline marks two firsts--our first production of the Bard in the Ellyn Bye Studio, and the first production of this fresh adaptation (calling for five actors and a pianist) by Artistic Director Chris Coleman.
