Antony & Cleopatra

This event has now passed.

Shakespeare’s Globe has taken the difficult but responsible decision to close our doors to the public until further notice, ceasing performances, education activities and tours.

As you can imagine, this has been one of the hardest decisions we have had to make, but a necessary one as we consider the safety and well-being of both the public, staff and volunteers.

We hope to open the doors to our wooden O as soon as possible – but in this unprecedented time for theatre, and as a charity that receives no annual government subsidy, we are in desperate need of donations to help us to continue to strive in the future.

We ask at this time of huge risk to our beloved theatre that you donate if you can. Any amount, large or small, will be hugely appreciated.

With love, solidarity and thanks to you all from the whole Globe family.

If   when we meet again, why, we shall smile

MAKE A DONATION NOW

The personal and the political are always inseparably entwined, but what happens when the personal becomes political and threatens an already unstable empire?

This may appear to be Ancient Rome and a long lost Egypt but Shakespeare’s experiment with love and power, reputation and regret, fake news and the painful truth, lives and breathes now, has stood the test of time, and is about to be radically and raucously reimagined.

We will be working with a mixed d/Deaf and hearing ensemble of actors. The production will be performed using a combination of Spoken English and BSL to create a world rich in word and motion.

Would I had never seen her.
O, sir, you had then left unseen a wonderful piece of work…

— Act I, scene 2

ANTONY & CLEOPATRA STORY

Cleopatra, the alluring and fascinatingly ambiguous Queen of Egypt, has bewitched the great Mark Antony, soldier, campaigner and now one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire. When Antony quarrels with his fellow leaders and throws in his lot with Cleopatra, his infatuation threatens to split the Empire in two.
