Antony and Cleopatra

Date: 22 Feb 2018

Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch
Of the ranged empire fall: here is my space.

Re-igniting the chemistry forged in director Clare Watson’s production of David Greig’s drama The Events, Catherine McClements and Johnny Carr take on the roles of Antony and Cleopatra in Shakespeare’s immortal tale of love and realpolitik.

In the wake of Caesar’s assassination, Mark Antony reached the heights of power. But his relationship with Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, threatens to destabilise an entire empire.

Peter Evans directs. Ray Chong Nee, Ursula Mills, Zindzi Okenyo, Steve Rodgers and Jo Turner are among the cast.
