Summary

Shakespeare's play, set during the Roman invasion of Britain, centres around the banishment of the man who has incurred the wrath of the king by secretly marrying his daughter. Confusion follows in an intricate plot in which nobody is quite who they seem to be.

Also starring Russell Gomer, Joseph Kloska, Gareth Armstrong, Christian Shaw, Meilyr Sion, John Labanowski, Richard Elfyn, Dorien Thomas, and Manon Edwards. Directed by Alison Hindell.

Not "Unabridged" as Advertised !

What would have made Cymbeline (BBC Radio 3: Drama on 3) better?

The blurb here on Audible says this is an "unabridged" version of the play. It's not.
If you purchased this planning to listen along while you read the text, you won't be able to.
I feel cheated.

Would you recommend Cymbeline (BBC Radio 3: Drama on 3) to your friends? Why or why not?

No. The blurb is inaccurate.
