Shakespeare in the Ruff at Withrow Park

By: Lisa Ng

Shakespeare in the Ruff is returning to Withrow Park this summer with a radical, imaginative, and larger-than-life production of Cymbeline’s Reign. 

Seven actors will play all of the roles in Cymbeline’s Reign - an adventure tale of a country on the brink of war with Rome when its princess, Imogen, marries her lover in secret, against the wishes of her father – King Cymbeline. 

Her husband is banished and Imogen flees the kingdom to join him, but is thwarted by a host of sinister characters that will do whatever it takes to keep them apart. As war finally erupts, these two lovers are caught between opposing sides and only the Gods will decide if they will ever see each other again.

Cymbeline’s Reign runs August 12th – August 31st, opening August 14th. Performances begin at 7pm, the cost is Pay-What-You-Can.
