“Extreme Shakespeare:” This production will be rehearsed akin to the way Shakespeare’s company would have—actors arrive with their lines learned, rehearse on their own, wear what they can find, and open in a matter of days. No directors, no designers. Just great actors, a brilliant play, pure adrenaline, spontaneity, and creativity.
Content Advisory: Cymbeline includes mature plot elements; and contains Shakespearean puns and innuendos.
