“This Brexit-inspired revival of Cymbeline is on the pulse “Telegraph ★★★★
Melly Still directs Shakespeare’s rarely performed romance hailed as’ vigorous and inventive’.
Cymbeline is a ruler of a divided Britain. When Innogen, the only living heir, marries her sweetheart in secret, an enraged Cymbeline banishes him. But a powerful figure behind the throne is plotting to seize power and murder them both. Innogen embarks on a dangerous journey that will reunite Cymbeline with a lost heir and reconcile the young lovers.
“Set in a post-Brexit dystopia, Melly Still’s production is odd, excessive and over-stuffed with ideas but it’s unafraid of emotion and boasts fine performances” The Guardian ★★★
