Royal Shakespeare Company
Cymbeline

Britain is in crisis. Alienated, insular and on the brink of disaster. Can it be saved? Cymbeline is Shakespeare’s coming of age tragicomic romance. A story of power, sexuality and identity - stunningly retold for the 21st century. An ineffectual Queen Cymbeline rules over a divided dystopian Britain. Consumed with grief at the death of two of her children, Cymbeline’s judgement is clouded. When Imogen, the only living heir, marries her sweetheart Posthumus in secret, an enraged Cymbeline banishes him. Behind the throne, a power-hungry figure plots to seize power by murdering them both. In exile Imogen's husband is tricked into believing she has been unfaithful to him and in an act of impulsive jealousy begins a scheme to have her murdered. Warned of the danger, Imogen runs away from court in disguise and begins a journey fraught with danger that will eventually reunite Cymbeline with a long-lost heir and reconcile the young lovers. Shakespeare's rarely performed tragicomic romance is directed by Melly Still who designed Tales from Ovid and Midnight's Children for the RSC and whose directing credits include The Cunning Little Vixen for Glyndebourne Opera and Coram Boy for the National Theatre. Melly directs Gillian Bevan in the role of Cymbeline, the first woman to take on the role for the RSC and making her RSC debut in the role of Imogen is Bethan Cullinane (King Lear, 2013 Globe Theatre).

Florence Foster Jenkins (PG)

Meryl Streep stars in this affectionate biopic of the world’s worst opera singer. Most of the time, famous people become famous for doing things well. Sometimes though, people become famous for doing things BADLY. Florence Foster Jenkins was one such person. Philomena director Stephen Frears brings Jenkins’ moving and hilarious story to the big screen for the first time with Meryl Streep as the woman whom audiences would pay to hear because of her lack of rhythm, pitch, and tone.
