The Royal Shakespeare Company Present Cymbeline

CYMBELINE

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s upcoming production of Cymbeline, directed by RSC Artistic Director Emeritus Gregory Doran, will run in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, from Saturday 22 April to Saturday 27 May 2023.

This production of Cymbeline marks Gregory Doran’s 50th show that he has directed for the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as being the last play from the first folio that he has not previously directed.

This tangled tale teems with extraordinary fairytale characters: a wicked stepmother, a girl who flees in disguise, a faithful servant, lost brothers and even a headless corpse.

As Jupiter descends on an eagle to resolve this beguiling tangle of tales, Cymbeline rises to a breathtaking crescendo, the giddiest climax in the entire canon.

Book now at rsc.org.uk/Cymbeline or ring the RSC Box Office on 01789 331111 to secure your tickets for this beguiling tale.
