Details

Tickets are now on sale for the Wivenhoe Open Air Shakespeare summer production of CYMBELINE- one of Shakespeare's late romance plays, but with a local connection - Cymbeline was also known as Cunobelin - who ruled in these parts in the first century AD. Coins of his minted in Colchester can be seen in the Castle Museum, and it is possible he is buried here.

But as ever Shakespeare's take on things was more fanciful - King Cymbeline has been a strong supporter of the Roman Empire, but his new queen persuades the people that Britons should not pay tribute, and provokes a war. Along the way, love, suspicion, betrayal, murder, battle, reconciliation and redemption as we wait to hear - will it be Brexit from the Roman Empire . . . ?

St Mary's Churchyard 19th to 23rd June at the new starting time of 7pm. Saturday Matinee 2pm. Tickets £7-50 from Wivenhoe Bookshop. Or use the new online ticketing system available on http://www.my-local.events/events/ .
