'You married ones, If each of you should take this course, how many must murder wives much better than themselves'
The King of Britain, enraged by his daughter's disobedience in marrying against his wishes, banishes his new son-in-law. The exiled husband flees to Rome, where he makes a foolish wager - gambling on the fidelity of his abandoned wife. Blending courtly menace and horror, comedy and melodrama, Cymbeline, one of Shakespeare's last plays, is a moving and nuanced depiction of two young lovers driven apart by deceit and self-doubt.
