Cymbeline – Orinda
Join us in celebrating 41 years of Free Shakespeare in the Park! Since 1983, as part of SF Shakes’ mission to make Shakespeare accessible to all, we’ve brought our Free Shakes production to audiences around the SF Bay Area; no tickets or Shakespeare experience required.
Cymbeline, Shakespeare’s epic romantic adventure, is believed to be one of his final plays and features a dazzling mix of comedy, tragedy, and fairy tale. King Cymbeline of Britain has banished Posthumus who has secretly married his daughter, Princess Imogen. A series of unimaginable misadventures ensue that test the strength of their commitment to each other and conclude with inventive scenes of revelation and joyous reconciliation.
The show is suitable for all ages and runs 90 minutes without an intermission. Public restroom are onsite.
The Café at the Sharon Simpson Center is available onsite, offering sandwiches, salads, desserts, hot and cold beverages, wine, and beer. Outside food (particularly nuts of any kind, as the amphitheater is a ‘nut-free zone’) and alcohol is not permitted.
