CYMBELINE, Shakespeare's Fairy Tale, by Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks
Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks presents CYMBELINE, Shakespeare's Fairy Tale, A story for our times, delivered to where you are...CYMBELINE.
Banishment. A wicked stepmother. A magic potion. Mistaken identities. Shakespeare's fairy tale conjures the mystical journey of a Celtic princess--Imogen--against all odds. Searching for her true love, Imogen navigates a hazardous yet magical world as only a Shakespearean heroine can. PSIP presents Shakespeare's fascinating romance, first performed in 1611 and seldom seen in Pittsburgh.
In 2020, you will have multiple opportunities to explore the intrigue and adventure of CYMBELINE every weekend in September. Our creative adaptation will begin with a weekly installment and revisit of the prior acts and culminate with the full show the final week of September.
