Cymbeline archiveImogen marries Posthumus against her father's wishes. Posthumous is exiled and while there told that he has lost his bet that his wife would be faithful. He plots a jealous reunion and revenge. Unaware, Imogene travels to meet him but after some strange occurrences she gets into disguise as a man - in a drugged sleep in a cave with a man and his two sons she awakes next to a headless corpse. This new and irreverent adaptation of the rarely performed Cymbeline sees Kneehigh dancing through misunderstandings, betrayals and battles in a giddy and elemental production filled with heart-stopping poetry, electrifying live music and characteristic madness.
