ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA
Directed by William Wolfgang
One of Shakespeare’s greatest masterpieces, Antony and Cleopatra, storms The Barn stage this fall. Featuring Queen Cleopatra of Egypt, one of the world’s most iconic characters from both history and literature, wrangling with her lover, Mark Antony. As these two Titans quip back and forth in their lover’s quarrels, the world’s mightiest empire takes aim at their indulgent and luxurious Egypt. What follows is some of The Bard’s finest storytelling; his daring verse fused with epic battles, all accentuated by Cleopatra’s ultimate plan to best her enemies.
