Article Pixel

Beginning October 17, 2016, the Royal Shakespeare Company's acclaimed production of Shakespeare's Cymbeline will play in select movie houses across North America.

The production, which opened to rave reviews at the RSC's home in Stratford-upon-Avon, was filmed for "Live from Stratford-upon-Avon," the RSC program that screens the world's greatest classical theatre company from Shakespeare's home town around the world through a continued partnership with Picturehouse Entertainment.

Cymbeline is a ruler of a divided Britain. When Innogen, the only living heir, marries her sweetheart in secret, an enraged Cymbeline banishes him. But a powerful figure behind the throne is plotting to seize power and murder them both. Innogen embarks on a dangerous journey that will reunite Cymbeline with a lost heir and reconcile the young lovers.

The full cast of Cymbeline includes: Hiran Abeysekera (Posthumus), Romayne Andrews (Lord 1/ Dutchman / Caius' attendant / Captain), Gillian Bevan (Cymbeline), Doreene Blackstock (Cornelius / Soldier / Gentlewoman), Eke Chukwu (Caius Lucius), James Clyde (Prince), James Cooney (Arviragus), Bethan Cullinane (Innogen), Marième Diouf (Helen / British attendant / Soldier), Kevin N Golding (Soldier / Tribune), Marcus Griffiths (Cloten), Oliver Johnstone (Iachimo), Byron Mondahl (Philario / Soldier), Theo Ogundipe (Lord 2 / Spaniard / Soldier), Natalie Simpson (Guiderius), Graham Turner (Belarius), Temi Wilkey (Philharmonius / Gentlewoman 2) and Kelly Williams (Pisanio).

Cymbeline is directed by Melly Still and designed Anna Fleischle with music by Dave Price and lighting by Philip Gladwell.
