Revolution Shakespeare

Suit the action to the word, the word to the action

Revolution Shakespeare, based in Philadelphia, PA, invites audiences to experience the variety and vitality of Shakespeare's works with bold and honest productions at little to no cost for patrons.


As the audience appears, a troupe of actors prepare, awaiting their arrival. Soon after, we are transported to Ancient Britain and distant Italy; as a story of ambition, love, deception, theft, and the fate of a nation hanging in the balance, unfolds. Cymbeline takes us from the pressures of the court, to the dangers of the forest as lovers, lost sons, ambassadors, queens and kings all vie for position, power and the right to return home. 

A cast of 7 actors, including RevShakes’ veterans and new faces, lead us on this adventure, fully in the round for an intimate and quick-paced production. Live music, pre-show entertainment and food truck fare are all part of this free production of Cymbeline. Join us on the journey.

RevShakes is thrilled to be presenting its fourth production of FREE fall Shakespeare in Hawthorne Park!

The following Cymbeline memes were created by senior students at Haddonfield Memorial High School as part of a collaboration between Revolution Shakespeare and Haddonfield Memorial High School's English Department. Teacher Kimberly Dickstein challenged her students to connect the Cymbeline text to pop-culture imagery, resulting in the memes you see below.
