Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Imogen, daughter of Cymbeline, enrages her father by marrying against his will. Lies are then told about Imogen to her husband, Posthumous, and he decides she should die. In an urban world that is as strange, erotic and violent as Shakespeare’s ancient Britain, Imogen is forced to re-imagine herself as she fights for the life she deserves and not the one that is being determined for her.
