Cymbeline, one of Shakespeare's later plays, has been described by Bernard Shaw as 'stagey thrash' for its multiple-plot lines and predictable outcomes. Phizzical's production ably directed by Samir Bhamra re-locates the narrative to the home of Bollywood, which pedals equally fantastical plots. Thus the bard and Bollywood become strange bedfellows in a production that fizzes with energy, charm and imagination.
