|Imogen Sleeping (from Shakespeare's Cymbeline) by N.M. Price**|
(1905 edition of Charles and Mary Lamb: Tales of Shakespeare.
From Orlando Shakespeare Theater comes the play known as "Shakespeare's Fairy Tale" - and no, I'm not talking about A Midsummer Night's Dream. It's Cymbeline (brief synopsis at the link): a play complete with a very evil stepmother, a sleeping potion, a defiant and resourceful princess, running away to hide in a forest and even a return from the (seeming) dead*.
"It's really like a Roman-era 'Snow White,'" says Jim Helsinger, artistic director of Orlando Shakespeare Theater.
