SUMMARY

If you took every single Shakespearean comedy, and mixed them all up with some Othello and Brothers Grimm, then you would get Cymbeline. The plot is a ridiculous fairy tale involving star-crossed lovers, a wicked stepmother, cross-dressing, a sleeping potion, a beheading, kidnapped heirs, hidden letters, a Roman invasion, and Jupiter descending from the sky. The play is both parody and sincerity, comedy and drama – and filled with a cast of lovable, hilarious, maniacal, and poignant characters.
