William Shakespeare freely adapted by Emma Rice
Twenty years after his two sons disappeared, King Cymbeline's only daughter Imogen plans to marry against his wishes. Enraged, Cymbeline banishes her childhood sweetheart Posthumus from court. He flees to Italy and makes a wager he'll soon regret. Cymbeline's new queen plots with her ghastly son Cloten. Emperor Caesar is on the war-path. And poor Joan (who's just got back from the Costa de Sol) hasn't got a clue what's going on!

Kneehigh turn their unique storytelling style to one of Shakespeare's least performed plays. In a script packed with heart-stopping poetry and characteristic charm, their irreverent adaptation plays fast and loose with the Bard. The result is a wild, giddy and elemental adventure that swings from tragedy to comedy and back again. Never has confusion been such fun!

'A glorious romp, swift, funny, cheeky and inventive... This is Kneehigh at its best… '  Sunday Times
