Antony and Cleopatra

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Robert Richmond
October 10 – November 19, 2017
Folger Theatre


History’s Greatest Love Story

Julius Caesar is no more and Mark Antony, at the peak of his political power, is ensconced in Egypt at the side of the irresistible Cleopatra. Torn between his military duty to the Roman Empire and his passionate love affair with Cleopatra, Antony finds himself engaged in both war and romance. Shakespeare’s epic encompasses politics and power, love and jealousy, alliance and misalliance.

The intimate setting of the Folger Theatre will be transformed to present this production in-the-round, offering greater intimacy to all of the action in Rome and in Egypt.
