ALBATROSS PRODUCTIONS presents a new version of Shakespeare's Cymbeline.
Modern Britain, home to liberal thought, social progression and a renewed sense of pride. The monarchy, having enjoyed strength and stability from recent surges in nationalistic interest, is now facing adversity from abroad and from within. Princess Imogen, heir to the throne since her brother's disappearance, and heart-throb of many, has finally decided to marry. Having eschwed kind but misguided offers to marry her step-brother, Imogen instead opts to propose to her girlfriend, Posthumus. King Cymbeline, himself a pioneer of the Marriage Equality Laws, is now embroiled in untimely personal conflict. The Queen won't permit a gay royal wedding, but losing his daughter would enfranchise his detestable step-son - and, with a backlash invasion from Italy on the horizon, he needs his kingdom as united as possible.
