Next from Theatre Prometheus: [gay Cymbeline] at the Anacostia Arts Center, January 2017
What happens when you take a 400-year-old English play with 75% male characters, recreate it as a lesbian love story with mostly female actors, and present it in a community-focused arts center in diverse, dynamic Washington, DC?
Theatre Prometheus is excited to answer that question with a groundbreaking production of one of William Shakespeare’s most complex plays.
Part comedy, part thriller, and part romance, our [gay] Cymbeline will explore themes of sexuality, homophobia, gender identity, and gender roles -- and, in doing so, will reveal Shakespeare’s world to be surprisingly similar and relevant to our own.
With tickets available through artful.ly, this production will run at the Anacostia Arts Center on the following dates in January 2017:
Thursday the 12th: 7:30 pm
Friday the 13th: 7:30 pm
Saturday the 14th: 2:30 pm and 7:30 pm
