Cymbeline

Cymbeline

 

Cymbeline is a King. Imogen, his only daughter, has married against his wishes and he has banished her new husband, Postumus, from Court. Cymbeline's second wife is simply wicked, as is her son Cloten who wishes that he had married Imogen. To complicate things further, Cymbeline had two sons who were kidnapped at birth. Never has confusion been so pleasurable and surprising!

This wild, giddy and elemental production will see Kneehigh marry comedy to tragedy. They will dance through misunderstandings, intimacies, betrayals and battles with heart-stopping poetry, electrifying live music and characteristic madness. With more twists and turns than a Cornish lane, this promises to be a white-knuckle ride...
