Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Kay Theatre.

Hamlet is knee-deep in a personal and political quagmire. His father, the king, has been murdered by his uncle Claudius, who has hastily married his sister-in-law to assume the throne. Seeking to avenge his father’s murder, Hamlet sets off a chain of events resulting in death, destruction and a notable absence of justice.

But the politics and scandal in Shakespeare’s classic tragedy are nothing compared to the political discord and global uncertainty of today. This student-driven, devised theater piece, adapted from the Bard’s tale, imagines a new cast of greedy, divisive leaders—and a new generation to challenge them and liberate themselves.

2018 Camp Encore presents Cymbeline at the Greenbelt Arts Center, July 11-12

2018 Camp Encore presents Cymbeline at the Greenbelt Arts Center, July 11-12

Cymbeline
“Boldness be my friend! Arm me, audacity.”
By William Shakespeare

Join director Kate Magill Robinson and the Camp Encore troupe leaders as they explore Shakespeare’s epic fairy tale. In ancient Britain, the virtuous Princess Imogen is slandered by an ingenious villain, separated from her young husband, and schemed against by her murderous stepmother, who seeks to put her own descendants on the throne of King Cymbeline. This sweeping romance features Roman invaders, kidnapped princes, magic potions, and multiple cases of mistaken identities. With the fate of Britain hanging in the balance, the various plots converge and secrets are revealed. But who will live happily ever after?

PERFORMANCES: Wednesday, July 11 at 1:00pm and Thursday, July 12 at 4:00pm and 7:00pm.
