“How hard it is to hide the sparks of nature!”

Filled with intrigue and romance, Shakespeare’s Cymbeline introduces an evil queen, an innocent young princess, an upstanding young man, a conniving villain, and the titular king into the fantastical world of this twist-filled tale. Jeff Christian directs.

A staged reading by professional actors from The Shakespeare Project of Chicago. An informative talk begins fifteen minutes before the performance, which is followed by a question-and-answer session with the director and cast. The Shakespeare Project was founded in 1993 and has performed at the Newberry Library since 2003.
