Subject:        Shaw's "Cymbeline Revisited"

I am currently involved with doing some dramaturgical work on a
production of "Cymbeline" to be performed here in the Seattle area in
July.  The director has asked that I look in to Shaw's adaptation of the
last act of "Cymbeline," and I was wondering if any esteemed
Shaksper-ians have had any experience with this ending or know anything
about it.  I have a copy, and I have read it through a couple of times,
but it still seems a bit unwieldy to ever be useful in performance.
Does anyone know if it has ever even been performed?
