Wooden O: Cymbeline – Seattle Shakespeare Co. @ Luther Burbank Park Amphitheater (Mercer Island)
Follow Imogen on a magical journey filled with unbelievable characters. With their lover banished and family torn apart, Imogen sets out on an adventure to reclaim their love and reconcile the family. Forbidden love, mistaken identities, banishment, and a magic potion — Shakespeare combines multiple styles in this endlessly inventive fairy tale.
Director Makaela Milburn and artist Meme García have crafted a modern, queer-forward folktale of scrappy resolve, identity exploration, and big-hearted forgiveness. A wondrous small company of players bring this story to life with music and a joyful pastiche of styles to illuminate this rarely performed romance.
