Shakespeare in the Parks: The Tale of Cymbeline
Saturday, August 31 - Monday, September 2, 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Great Lawn in front of Eliot Hall
This event is open to the public.
Bring a blanket and find a place on the Great Lawn to view one of the Bard’s lesser known romances, The Tale of Cymbeline. Princess Imogen’s stepmother wants to kill her. Her father, King Cymbeline, is no help. Meanwhile, Imogen’s banished love, Posthumus, thinks she’s cheating on him. What’s a wronged royal to do? Swap the skirts for pants and run away disguised as a boy into the magical wilds of Shakespeare’s ancient Britain, that’s what. In true fairy-tale style, the improbable becomes probable in an epic, adventurous romance filled with kind strangers, dastardly villains, ghosts, gods, and lost princes. The high road to happily-ever-after awaits. The 44th annual Shakespeare in the Parks is presented by the Portland Actors Ensemble.
