“This Sun That Shines” Shakespeare’s Cymbeline 7.30pm Saturday 15 July 2017 St Margaret’s Church, Cley‐next‐the‐Sea
A storytelling version of William Shakespeare’s play Devised and performed by Annette Armstrong
Set in Celtic Britain, this once‐upon‐a‐ time tale tells of a princess who defies her father the king and secretly marries the man she loves. Complete with evil stepmother, lost princes, scheming villains, raiding Romans, heroic knights and a heroine, Princess Imogen, who has the courage and wit of an Elisabeth Bennet and Jane Eyre combined.
“Annette Armstrong's storytelling performance of Cymbeline was a highlight of the Shakespeare Festival. Through her meticulously crafted and compellingly-told rendition of Shakespeare's play, the audience was transported into the ancient lands of Celtic Britain and the machinations of a royal family feud. Moving seamlessly between the play's themes of innocence, jealousy and redemption, she held the audience spellbound with just the right balance of stillness and movement, humour and passion. A triumph of the art of storytelling!” Adrian Locher, Director of the London Shakespeare Festival 2016
