Cymbeline (Barbican, EC2, 0171 638 8891, now previewing, opens Tues). Adrian Noble's engrossing main-stage production moves south, with Joanne Pearce as Imogen and Paul Freeman as Iachimo, the man determined to prove her unfaithful.

The Mysteries (The Pit, EC2, 0171 638 8891, now previewing, opens Wed). Katie Mitchell's beautifully spare Stratford production of The Creation and The Passion has been substantically rewritten by dramaturge Edward Kemp, giving the second half a 20th-century setting and including bits of Dostoevsky, Rilke and the Koran.
