ANTONY AND CLEOPATRAGlobe - Taming of the Shrew
By William Shakespeare

Thursday, March 31 – 2 p.m.
Sunday, April 3 – 2 p.m.

Cleopatra, the alluring and fascinatingly ambiguous Queen of Egypt, has bewitched the great Mark Antony, soldier, campaigner and now one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire. When Antony quarrels with his fellow leaders and throws in his lot with Cleopatra, his infatuation threatens to split the Empire in two.

Antony & Cleopatra picks up Antony’s story many years after Julius Caesar. Virtue and vice, transcendent love and realpolitik combine in Shakespeare’s greatest exploration of the conflicting claims of sex and power, all expressed in a tragic poetry of breathtaking beauty and magnificence.

Olivier Award-winner Eve Best’s ‘magnetically humorous’ (Evening Standard) performance captures Cleopatra’s sensuality brilliantly.

Pre-show discussion hosted by Amanda Kellock, Artistic Director, Repercussion Theatre.
