Imogen angers her father, King Cymbeline of Britain, when she marries the honorable but poor Posthumus, instead of his stepson, Cloten. King Cymbeline then sends Posthumus into exile in Rome, where he falls prey to the manipulations of slick Iachimo, who tries to convince him that Imogen will be unfaithful. Meanwhile, the Queen attempts to orchestrate a match between her stepdaughter, Imogen, and her shallow son, Cloten. A foolish king, sinister queen, beautiful princess and a nasty clown combine with deceit, cross-dressing and poison to create both a tragic and comedic tale of life and love renewed.
The Feb. 25 performance is a special "preview," and a special pre-show discussion will take place beginning at 6:45 p.m. before the March 7 performance.
