'Cymbeline' At UWM Plays With Gender And Power Dynamics

Nov 6, 2018

From Much Ado About Nothing and The Taming of the Shrew, to King Lear and Othello, Shakespeare continually mined gender and power dynamics in his plays. These themes also show up in some of his lesser-known plays like Cymbeline, which is on stage at UW-Milwaukee's Peck School of the Arts' Kenilworth Five-0-Eight. Director and theatre professor, Rebecca Holderness, talks to Bonnie North about what drew her to this play and what she hopes audiences take away from the production. Cymbeline runs from November 7 through November 11.
