Cymbeline shares many familiar tropes with other Shakespeare works and fairy tales: there’s true love, adventure, disguised identities, adulterous schemes, an evil stepmother queen, and even a potion whose effects mimic death. There are also timely questions of equity, gender roles, power, and deceit. Despite being one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known plays, it is nonetheless an epic story and we cannot wait to share it with audiences.
Midsommer Flight is a proud Arts Partner with the Chicago Park District.
This season is partially supported by the Illinois Arts Council Agency; the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity Back 2 Business Grant; the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events; and the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation.
