NapaShakes celebrates Shakespeare’s 400th Anniversary with New York’s acclaimed Fiasco Theater in Cymbeline
A young ensemble of six versatile actors resolves the twisted fates of 14 characters at lightning speed, with live music from a cappella to bluegrass. A sold-out smash in New York --- don’t miss this exclusive West Coast engagement.
A trunk becomes a ship. A sheet becomes a sail. Poisoning, beheading, cross-dressing, and betrayal become fresh and frisky thanks to New York’s acclaimed Fiasco Theater’s inventive production of William Shakespeare’s epic comedic romance Cymbeline.
Set in Ancient Britain during the Roman invasion, Cymbeline tells of a beautiful princess separated from her beloved, the cruel step-mother who tries to foil her, a credulous husband duped by an adversary, and an exiled nobleman who kidnaps a king’s sons.
