By: William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
Cymbeline is one of the last plays Shakespeare wrote, classified by scholars as a late romance or comedy. It's famous for featuring a highly convoluted plot that oftentimes feels like a grab bag of elements from Shakespeare's greatest hits: we have virtuous lovers, a temperamental monarch, a conniving stepmother, an untrustworthy Italian, an arrogant clod, kidnapped siblings, cross-dressing, battles, a devious murder plot, and some shocking plot twists.And to perform it all? Three men and one woman , determined to give you a performance of this oft-neglected piece that you will never forget. You thought you knew your Shakespeare? Well, think again! - Summary by Tomas Peter
