BWW Review: CYMBELINE, Barbican, 3 November 2016
by Rona Kelly - Nov 4, 2016

Why the sudden revival? A fool boasts 'Britain is a world by itself' (and no, I don't mean Nigel Farage). In a post-Brexit Britain, these words ring truer than ever before in this bold production, which ironically seems to be lacking a sense of unity and cohesion too.
