Antony & Cleopatra image

For the first time in ten years, Antony & 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 an empire ruled by men. Egypt is a kingdom governed by a woman.
Despite their different cultures, Roman general Antony falls for Egyptian queen Cleopatra. Their passion blazes across two continents, upsets the world order and puts thousands of lives at risk.
Blanche McIntyre (Measure for Measure; Twelfth Night: For One Night Only, Globe) directs Shakespeare’s blockbuster clash of cultures, with Charlotte Arrowsmith (This is Going to Hurt, BBC) as Associate Director and Nadia Nadarajah (Midnight Movie, Royal Court) as Cleopatra.
Eternity was in our lips and eyes…
– Act I, scene 3
 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. Further information on the creative integration of both British Sign Language and Spoken English will be in due course.
