The Orlando Shakespeare Theater presents Cymbeline written by William Shakespeare and directed by Jim Helsinger from February 8 - March 18, 2012.
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.
