Production Language English
Country of Origin England, United Kingdom
Description 9th - 12th grade. Jealousy, mistaken identities, familial strife, and rampant confusion all come into play in this delightfully rendered Cymbeline, a redemptive tale of love nearly lost. Contrary to the play's reputation of being overly complex and difficult to stage, this is Cymbeline as Shakespeare must have conceived it: profound yet leavened by riotous and unexpected tragedy-skirting mishaps. The ultra-versatile cast of six takes on Cymbeline's nearly 30 roles. taking a cue from the Bard, who in this late work cuts loose with form, language, and struture, this world-renowned Shakespearean company treats the production as an adventure in storytelling at its best.
