Cymbeline 2018 – Performance Clips

It is 2018 and our country is in crisis: alienated, insular, and divided. In an attempt to preserve tradition, Cymbeline, pressured by his self-serving wife, arranges for his daughter and heir, Imogen, to be married off to a privileged, arrogant example of male toxicity. Her refusal and subsequent foray into the forest in disguise begins a journey fraught with danger, power, and jealousy. Will she persist?
