    The Marlowe Society’s centenary celebrations reach their peak with a production of Cymbeline, directed by Marlowe alumnus Trevor Nunn. Although he has never directed the play before, he acted in the 1960 Society production, directed by the legendary ‘Dadie’ Rylands, alongside fellow students Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Derek Jacobi and Margaret Drabble.

    ‘The Marlowe Society has had more influence on the British theatre than, I think, anybody knows’ Sir Peter Hall

    Cymbeline is one of Shakespeare’s magical romances, written at the end of his writing lifetime. It is full of narrative surprises: a wicked Queen, a pair of lovers, a cunning Italian, a Roman invasion, not one but two lost sons, a mysterious prophecy, and a gender changing heroine who fakes her own death – all reconciled in a virtuoso display of plot resolution in the last scene.

    Past alumni of the Marlowe Society include Rachel Weisz, Griff Rhys Jones, Simon Russell Beale and Sam Mendes.
