Cymbeline by William Shakespeare

directed by Murray Ross

All performances take place at Rock Ledge Ranch.

In Roman Britain, Renaissance Italy and western Wales, Shakespeare travels through time and space with a charming heroine, a wicked queen, a sinister seducer, a banished husband, a perfect clod and a visitor from Olympus. This is Shakespeare’s wildest and most enchanting romance, and the perfect tale for a Colorado summer night.

Murray says: “We’ve wanted to do this play for ages! For many years Cymbeline lingered in obscurity, but it is now enjoying popular revivals.  It’s the last play printed in the Folio, where it was included as a tragedy.  It is not a tragedy! In fact it has one of the happiest endings in all of Shakespeare, but achieved only after poisoning, treachery, battles and a notable beheading. It is truly a play of wonders!”
