Midsommer Flight will mark its 9th year as an Arts Partner in Chicago’s parks with Shakespeare’s Cymbeline. One of Shakespeare’s lesser known works, Cymbeline is nonetheless an epic story, complete with many familiar Shakespearean and fairy tale tropes: banished lovers, evil queens, and adulterous schemes; a heroine who dresses as a man; a potion whose effects mimic death; kidnapped children who don’t know they are royalty, and more.
All performances are FREE and open to the public. Donations are gratefully accepted.
Bring your own chairs and blankets. Live music begins a half hour prior to performance times. Come early with a picnic to stake out your seats and enjoy this free programming!
Midsommer Flight is a proud Arts Partner with the Chicago Park District and a participant in the Mayor’s Night Out in the Parks.
WEATHER POLICY: Midsommer Flight will perform, rain or shine, as long as conditions are safe and there is an audience there to watch the show. We will not perform in the event of thunderstorms or other unsafe conditions. Watch our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/midsommerflight) or our Instagram feed (@midsommer.flight) for any last minute updates or cancellations.
