Fredericton / Calendar / Bard in the Barracks: Cymbelline

The summer’s second play will be Shakespeare’s late romance Cymbeline, to be staged in Odell Park.

A tale of jealousy that sees lovers and families torn apart by envy and malice only to be reunited after standing the test of time, Cymbeline is a wild and exciting fairy tale-inspired dark comedy.

Set in Ancient Britain against the backdrop of a rebel uprising, as native Britons struggle to assert their independence against their Roman overlords, Cymbeline will transform Odell Park into the wilds of rural Wales, replete with potions, treachery, ghosts, gods, and epic battles.

Oh, and perhaps the odd decapitation. If you happen to like such things… and we think you will!
