What happens when the lives of a foolish king, a beautiful princess, her banished husband and a charming rogue collide?
William Shakespeare's Cymbeline is re-imagined as a rich, grandiose and vibrant tale of love, deception and warfare inpired by the historical events from the sub continent.
Power, love and treachery are to the fore when the rebellious Princess Innogen risks her reputation and family honour by marrying without her father’s permission. When her husband falls prey to the manipulations of a rakish and smooth-talking womaniser, her loyalty is tarnished. Innogen is forced to swap her sari for breeches and flee from court.
The improbable becomes probable in this epic, adventurous romance filled with heroic strangers, sinister villains, ghosts, gods and long-lost brothers. Will the Kingdom have its happily ever after?
