King Cymbeline banishes his daughter’s true love so she’ll marry his choice. Meanwhile his wife the Queen schemes her own power grab behind his back. Palace intrigue, treachery, murder plots, and deception, Cymbeline is a grand fairy tale of restoration and reconciliation.
Backyard Bard was born out of a desire to bring Shakespeare to smaller parks and new audiences in underserved neighborhoods. The company presents two stripped-down productions of Shakespeare’s plays, each one hour long, and both performed by a small ensemble of versatile actors. (Sundays are double-feature days, with both plays performed.)
Free, non-ticketed event; donations welcomed. Info and schedule here.
