Repercussion Theatre presents



by William Shakespeare (ed. A. Kellock)

Part fairy-tale, part historical-fiction, part tragic-comedy – Cymbeline has it all: a troubled kingdom, forbidden love, betrayal, battles, deception, disguises, revelations and reunion…

With music, a dynamic, eco-conscious design, and an ensemble of eight talented actors taking on multiple roles, Cymbeline explores what we do in the name of love, how deeply our humanity is rooted in the Earth, and how much we must sometimes lose to find ourselves, and each other, again.

Each summer over 13,000 people gather in parks in and around Montreal to delight in the language of the Bard and in the magic of live theatre. Audiences are comprised of all ages and economic/cultural backgrounds. Given that the tour visits parks in very different neighborhoods, and because the shows are offered free of charge (with donations graciously accepted) the tour has always been a highly accessible cultural experience.

“We don’t just present Shakespeare’s plays – we enter into dialogue with them. Just as William Shakespeare used the theatre as a way to ‘hold a mirror up to nature’, we seek to explore the major issues of our time through the work we create. So why Shakespeare? He asks some deeply important questions in sublimely subtle ways. His intelligence, humanity and imagination are endless sources of inspiration. As a creative partner, he’s without equal.” – Amanda Kellock | Artistic Director
