Antony and Cleopatra
by William Shakespeare
Oct 19 - Nov 5 ??? Circle Theatre
Directed by Kenneth Kelleher
Featuring Michael Storm and Julie Hughett
One fateful meeting reshapes the ancient world when the great Roman warrior Marc Antony, like Caesar before him, falls in love with the incomparable Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile. His devotion to desire rather than duty is the beginning of a downward spiral for him, the Republic and Cleopatra, the last in her bloodline. Shakespeare???s epic love story, set in modern day by director Kenneth Kelleher, presents history as a breathtaking pageant full of passion, intrigue, exotic locales and the larger-than-life characters that brought about the death of an Egyptian dynasty and the birth of the Roman Empire.
