Delaware Shakespeare Presents Cymbeline

Delaware Shakespeare Presents Cymbeline



The Lewes Public Library Spoken Word Society welcomes Delaware Shakespeare, which will present Shakespeare's Cymbeline, this year's Community Tour offering.

Imogen, the daughter of King Cymbeline of Britain, deals with an evil stepmother and a deadly potion, before befriending mysterious men in a woodland cave. Sound familiar, Snow White fans? Love betrayed and a Roman invasion are thrown into the mix of this beautiful, funny, and chaotic saga.

Delaware Shakespeare launched its new Community Tour in Fall 2016. The productions travel throughout the state bringing thrilling, professional Shakespeare to audiences who may not have easy access to professional arts experiences. Community Tour productions play in non-theatrical settings and the production values are scaled for those spaces, with live music, minimal sets, and whatever lighting is available. The productions are performed with a cast of six actors and a musician.

Celebrating its twenty-first season, Delaware Shakespeare creates year-round professional theatre and educational programs for residents and friends of the State of Delaware. At Del Shakes, people from all walks of life celebrate and explore their shared humanity through the lens of Shakespearean work.

Registration is required.
