SPELLBOUND!, Southwest Shakespeare Company, May 07 – May 24, 2015
Princess Imogen’s stepmother wants to kill her. Her father, King Cymbeline, is no help. Meanwhile, Imogen’s banished love, Posthumus, thinks she’s cheating on him. What’s a wronged royal to do? Swap the skirts for pants and run away disguised as a boy into the magical wilds of Shakespeare’s ancient Britain, that’s what. In true fairy tale style, the improbable becomes probable in an epic, adventurous romance filled with kind strangers, dastardly villains, ghosts, gods and lost princes. The high road to happily-ever-after awaits.
