With music and heart, a small ensemble of storytellers will tell this tale of love and betrayal, adventure and honor, and – ultimately – forgiveness. In Shakespeare’s Cymbeline, things are rarely as they seem. And that’s the magic of it. A new adaptation of Shakespeare’s most “experimental” play by Boston University MFA directing and arts administration certificate student Avital Shira explores the resilience required to persist after “happily ever after.”
Directed and Adapted by Avital Shira
Based on an adaptation by Henry Woronicz
Performing Wednesday, May 9th at 7:30 PM at Boston College of Fine Arts, 855 Commonwealth Avenue, Room 354.
