Action-packed and full of twists and turns, Cymbeline is an epic adventure with Shakespeare’s most ambitious plot. Featuring live Foley sound by James Ard, a company of fifteen actors, and some crucial audience participation, this staged reading invites you to share in the theater making process and essential storytelling.
