Suman Bhuchar and Tony Howard talk to Samir Bhamra about his production of Cymbeline (2013) with Phizzical Theatre:
The reason why the play spoke to me was I am of mixed-faith origin, both my parents eloped — they were both different religions and my mum was disinherited by her family: they refused to speak to her for the rest of her life. It spoke to me about a story I felt was very real, very today still.
