for the first time in ten years, Antony & Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s epic story of love, duty, and power unfolds in the Globe Theatre in a ground-breaking bilingual production using Spoken English and British Sign Language.
Rome is an empire ruled by men. Egypt is a kingdom governed by a woman.
Despite their different cultures, Roman general Antony falls for Egyptian queen Cleopatra. Their passion blazes across two continents, upsets the world order and puts thousands of lives at risk.
Blanche McIntyre (Measure for Measure; Twelfth Night: For One Night Only, Globe) directs Shakespeare’s blockbuster clash of cultures, with Charlotte Arrowsmith (This is Going to Hurt, BBC) as Associate Director and Nadia Nadarajah (Midnight Movie, Royal Court) as Cleopatra.Book Tickets
