What is it about this play ....?

The scene is III, iv -- and a wonderful scene it is, where Pisanio
spares Imogen and plots her disguise.  In III, vi she arrives at
Belarius' cave, and presents herself as Fedele to her long-lost unknown
brothers-- who love her at sight.  She says, "Pardon me. gods!  I'd
change my sex to be companion with them, since Leonatus' false."

Cloten is the Wicked Stepmother Queen's son, and when his loutishness is
well performed it's a great and memorable occasion.

Imogen (or Innogen) disguises herself as Fidele.  Cloten, one of the
villains, gets decapitated, which would have exceeded the very
considerable skills of a boy actress.
