Cymbeline – Shakespeare’s rarely performed late romance about deception and forgiveness comes to BATS and is presented to you by the Lonely Shakespeare Collective.

Princess Imogen is having a tough week. Her father, King Cymbeline, has separated her from her new husband, Posthumus, her wicked stepmother is trying to kill her, and the queen’s son just can’t take a hint. What’s a girl to do?

Meanwhile the banished, Posthumus, arrives in Rome, where he meets the cunning Italian gentleman, Iachimo, who challenges him to a simple wager. What could possibly go wrong?

And in the sleepy hills of Milford-Haven, two children are about to find out their secret royal lineage.

This quirky play features live music and a striking battle sequence choreographed by LOTR Motion Capture Director, Carrie Thiel, all set in an alternative Victorian era.

Come grab a drink and enjoy a night of Shakespearean delight!
