WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Shakespeare's Cymbeline has all the vicious insults, bloody blades, cross-dressed ladies, and compromised bedchambers that have made the Bard famous. It is also a no-holds-barred epic, a dark fairy tale set off by a king's rash verdict and a princess who won't stand for her man's wrongful banishment. The acclaimed director of Lifeline Theatre's Hunger and Irish Theatre of Chicago's The White Road, recently seen onstage in Strawdog Theatre Company's production of The Arsonists, now makes his directing debut with Strawdog.
