In the rarely performed Cymbeline, Shakespeare combines all of our favourite characters from his iconic works, placing them in a dark fairytale world. A declining fretful king, a manipulative, ambitious queen and a charming, deceitful villain attempt to bring about the downfall of a feisty, incorruptible heroine and her earnest, but doubt wracked lover. Filled with treachery, poisonings, cross dressing, ghosts, gore and true love, Cymbeline is a dark comedy, which merges Shakepeare’s greatest hits into one masterpiece to examine a central issue of his time and ours: Faith!
