The City of Maple Valley with support from the Maple Valley Creative Arts Council are proud to bring GreenStage to Maple Valley again in 2016. They are Seattle’s longest-running Shakespeare Company and is committed to presenting top-quality productions of classical theater in a public park setting. We will host two free live plays to be held in Lake Wilderness Park in the Natural Amphitheatre. Concessions will be available for purchase during the plays.
Written by William Shakespeare, Cymbeline is set in Ancient Britain and based on legends that formed part of the Matter of Britain. Although listed as a tragedy, modern critics classify this play as a romantic comedy. Cymbeline, the Roman Empire's vassal king of Britain once had two sons who were stolen twenty years earlier as infants now discovers that his only child left, his daughter Imogen, has secretly married her lover Posthumus Leonatus. Posthumus is then banished from the land lending time for the wicked step mother, Cymbeline's Queen, to conspire to gain control of the kingdom. Imogen sets out to save herself and finds many truths along her journey that allow her to be with her true love and bring happiness to the kingdom.
