Energetic and invigorating, Play In A Day is Bell Shakespeare’s lively script reading series celebrating rarely read classics.

Actors and director have one day together as a group before standing script-in-hand in front of an audience, the bare-bones reading allowing the words to take centre stage.

Cymbeline, by William Shakespeare

Imogen is a princess. Her father, Cymbeline, wants her to marry her step-brother, but Imogen has other ideas. She marries Posthumus, a commoner. Cue a whirlwind romance – until Posthumus, falsely believing her to be unfaithful, orders Imogen to be murdered. A family reunion is on the horizon, but not until Imogen disguises herself as a boy, fakes her own death, joins the Roman army, and becomes a prisoner of war.

Is it a tragedy? A romance? A comedy? Join us for this lively reading at Pier 2/3 and decide for yourself! For the first time, Play In A Day will be held in the spectacular Neilson Nutshell.
