Antony & Cleopatra

A co-production with Merseyside Everyman Theatre


Written by William Shakespeare

Directed by Yvonne Brewster

Overview

This is an intimate play. The battles are all off-stage and the crucial scenes often take place between a small number of characters. However, as there are some 43 named parts, not to mention numerous ladies, servants eunuch, soldiers, captains, and officers, this has meant that what we have come to call 'amalgamations' of similar characters, have played a major part in one's thinking. Thus Eros, who commits suicide for the love of Antony is also the messenger who brings tidings of his marriage in Rome to Cleopatra and so on.
