Written at the height of Shakespeare’s powers, Cymbeline has been described variously as his most surprising, anarchic and moving play.

 

What pleasure, sir, find we in life, to lock it/From action and adventure?

 

An evil stepmother, an invading army, a headless corpse, ghosts and a divine visit from Jupiter hurtle us towards an astonishing conclusion in this saga of politics, the supernatural and love. Lynchpin of the story is one of Shakespeare’s greatest female characters, the impulsive and sensual Imogen.

 

Produced by Cheek by Jowl in a co-production with barbicanbite07, Les Gemeaux Sceaux, Scène Nationale, and Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg.

The first performance of Cymbeline was at Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg on 27th February 2007.
