Bear & Co. tours Shakespeare’s exuberantly oddball masterpiece Cymbeline to Ottawa’s parks. Follow a pair of lovers as they react to the mad world around them in a 90-minute version of the play Shakespeare packed with every plot device he could think of: star-crossed lovers, a wicked stepmother, a befuddled king, a loyal servant, separated siblings, wild men, exiled kin, cross-dressing, kidnapping, murder plots, and a Roman invasion.
Join us outdoors to celebrate the long evenings and warm weather and enjoy theatre that stands the test of time. Bring a cool drink or a full picnic, raingear in case it mizzles, and bug spray, and watch six actors conjure the deliciously weird world of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline in the open air. All shows start at 7, July 3-Aug 5, every day but Monday. Suggested donation: $20 per person.
