Cymbeline

Cymbeline is back for more!



After a wildly successful run at the New Victory Theatre, Fiasco Theater is pleased to present the Theatre for a New Audience production of Cymbeline thru December 31st at the Barrow Street Theatre.



As dizzyingly eventful a drama as Shakespeare ever conceived, Cymbeline tells of a beautiful princess separated from her beloved, the cruel step-mother who tries to kill her, a credulous husband duped by an adversary, an exiled nobleman who kidnaps a king's sons and a Roman invasion of Britain. In this lightning-paced production, a plain white cloth becomes a sail, a bed sheet, and a toga and a "fabulous" trunk becomes a bed, a throne and a cave. The transformations are magical and playful and true to the play, deepening its themes of illusion, deception and belief.
