Cymbeline, King of a beleaguered Britain, mourns the loss of his two sons who were stolen at birth. He has married a new, wicked Queen, and his stepson and now-heir, Cloten, is set to marry his daughter, Imogen. Instead, Imogen secretly marries her beloved Posthumus, a commoner.
Cymbeline banishes Posthumus from court. Before leaving, Posthumus gives Imogen a bracelet to remind her of his love for her. While exiled, Posthumus lays a wager on Imogen’s chastity with his villainous friend Iachimo, who is determined to prove that she will be unfaithful.
Imogen is not seduced by his charms, but while she is sleeping, Iachimo steals the bracelet from her wrist. He presents it to Posthumus and so convinces him that Imogen has been unfaithful. Imogen escapes to Wales, disguised as a boy, to find Posthumus, and is followed by Cloten, who disguises himself as her husband. Confusion escalates before a divine power intervenes and all is revealed…
