Cymbeline

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Tom Ridgely
Feb 24 — Mar 22, 2020
Varied

One of Shakespeare’s final plays – and one of his greatest achievements – Cymbeline is a romantic adventure story on an epic scale.

It tells the story of Innogen, the princess of Britain, who embarks on a dangerous journey to find her husband and through courage and ingenuity clears her good name.

Combining elements of comedy, tragedy, history and fairy tale, Cymbeline is not only a summation of Shakespeare’s incomparable career but a dazzling piece of showmanship that culminates in one of the most masterful final scenes of revelation and reconciliation in the canon.

Featuring an inventive and energetic company of six actors, the ShakespeareFestival TourCo’s production offers a fast-paced, easy-to-understand performance of this underappreciated gem that revels in all the unbridled theatricality of a writer pushing the boundaries of what a play can be.
