Baltimore Shakespeare Factory Presents CYMBELINE
The Hampden-based Baltimore Shakespeare Factory will open their 2019 season with Cymbeline. Set in ancient Britain, Cymbeline is among Shakespeare's final triumphs. Masterfully blending comedy, tragedy, romance, and adventure-and featuring one of the early Modern Stage's greatest female leads-Cymbeline (like its contemporary The Winter's Tale) considers the implications of jealousy run wild, and the healing powers of pardon and forgiveness.
As one of the last plays William Shakespeare ever penned, Cymbeline puts a capstone on the Bard's storied career. Shakespeare aficionados will recognize character types and plot elements from his other, more familiar plays. BSF Artistic Director Tom Delise directs, bringing the company's signature style of fast-paced, interactive theatre to the stage with a fairytale spin.
Baltimore Shakespeare Factory will present Cymbeline on its Elizabethan-style Hampden stage Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from February 15-March 10, 2019.
