Cymbeline’s Reign (2014)
Adapted by Andrew Joseph Richardson, inspired by Henry Brooke’s Cymbeline, A Tragedy (1779)
Directed by Brendan McMurtry-Howlett
Cymbeline’s Reign is the adventure tale of a country on the brink of war when it’s princess, Imogen, marries her lover in secret, against the wishes of her father—King Cymbeline. Her husband is banished and Imogen flees the kingdom to join him, but is thwarted by a host of sinister characters that will do whatever it takes to keep them apart. As war finally erupts, these two lovers are caught between and only the Gods will decide if they will ever see each other again.
