"Estranged parents and children, jealous lovers, noble rustics, strange potions, a lass in male disguise, taboo love, a monarch with an anger-management problem they all figure in this overstuffed yet often wistful and witty romance, spun from an ancient Celtic fable. "

Misha Berson, SEATTLE TIMES


Plays and Events

Cymbeline

February 8 - March 18. 2012  

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Jim Helsinger


Shakespeare's epic fairy tale is a sweeping story of love, laughter, betrayal and redemption. Evil queens, forbidden love, mistaken identities, banishment, magic potions and poison fill the stage in this storybook adventure. After brave Princess Imogen is falsely accused of adultery and escapes her father's court, she sets forth on a treacherous and miraculous journey to reclaim her place in society and reunite with her true love.

Content Advisory: Suitable for teens and adults, Cymbeline contains onstage violence and sexual innuendo. Concerned parents and theatergoers may want to call the Box Office for more information.

 

Audiences are saying...


"There's something thrilling, too, in Orlando Shakespeare Theater's lush production of 'Cymbeline,' a fairy tale for adults. It's in the way that director Jim Helsinger lets the audience members embrace their inner children. This is glorious grown-up fairy tale, and Helsinger finds just the right tone for his cast..." - Matt Palm, ORLANDO SENTINEL [full review]

"
...delightful new production...refreshingly unstuffy...Cymbeline makes a strong argument for mentally refiling Shakespeare from 'just good for you' to 'just good fun.'" - Seth Kubersky, ORLANDO WEEKLY [full review]

"A beautiful production of one of the more obscure Shakespeare plays that didn't pander or condescend to the audience. Great combat and music/singing alongside the high production values I've come to expect. This would rank amongst my favorite OST Shakespeare productions."

"It must be noted that CYMBELINE is a complex story and easily can become muddy and unclear in performance. This production however, made it clear, followable and most of all enjoyable!"
