Happy Endings Abound in Shakespeare’s Cymbeline by A Noise Within
A Noise Within Theatre (Pasadena, CA)
A Noice Within presents Shakespeare’s dark and wildly comic fairy tale, Cymbeline. One of Shakespeare’s last works, Cymbeline follows the adventures of the brave princess Imogen, who, after being exiled from her father’s court and falsely accused of adultery, sets out on a treacherous and miraculous journey to reclaim her good name and reunite with her true love. Shakespeare wrote the play using many of the tragic situations and characters from his previous works, this time letting them find happier endings and new beginnings. Tragedy becomes comedy; despair turns into hope. Cymbeline brims with romance, mystery and violent intrigue as it uncovers the resiliency of love and its conquest over chaos. Bart DeLorenzo directs.
