Antony and Cleopatra

Press Opening

History’s Greatest Love Story
Julius Caesar is no more and Mark Antony, at the peak of his political power, is lustily ensconced in Egypt at the side of the irresistible Cleopatra. Torn between his military duties to the Rome and his passionate love affair with Cleopatra, Antony finds himself between two countries waging war and a war of romance in Egypt when he is summoned home to Rome. Shakespeare’s epic saga of politics and passion, love and jealousy, alliance and war features Shirine Babb and Cody Nickell. Robert Richmond reunites with his creative design team from the recently acclaimed Timon of Athens and Richard III to bring this epic tale to life and transform the Elizabethan theatre to present Antony and Cleopatra in-the-round.
