A love that changed the world.
For the first time in ten years, Antony and 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 a militant empire governed by three men. Egypt is an ancient kingdom ruled by a woman.
Despite their cultures being worlds apart, Roman general Antony falls for Egyptian queen Cleopatra, and abandons his responsibilities at home, to the disdain of his fellow ruler Octavius Caesar. As their passion intensifies, so do the tensions between their countries. Before long, decisions are made that threaten devastating consequences for not only each other, but the very foundations of their two societies.
Blanche McIntyre (Measure for Measure; Twelfth Night: For One Night Only, Globe) directs Shakespeare’s blockbuster clash of cultures, with Charlotte Arrowsmith (Credit) as Associate Director and Nadia Nadarajah (Credit, Theatre) as Cleopatra.
All performances of Antony & Cleopatra will be captioned. The creative team of deaf and hearing artists and consultants will begin the creation process for the production in the spring. The Globe will therefore be able to provide further information on the creative integration of both British Sign Language and Spoken English in due course.
