Antony and Cleopatra

Important Info: Audio described and captioned performance 8th January 2018 at 7:15pm

Antony Byrne and Josette Simon star as Antony and Cleopatra, the title characters in Shakespeare’s famous romantic tale, well known for its depiction of historical figures and for portraying a gripping and emotional story.

It appears as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Rome MMXVII Season, which sees Julius Caesar and Titus Andronicus appear as well, so this is a wonderful opportunity to witness some gripping Shakespearean plays that deal with a fascinating period in world history.

The story follows the title characters, with Mark Antony within the heart of government in the Roman Empire and his love Queen Cleopatra of Egypt at his side. But it is clear that he struggles to juggle a work-life balance as he devotes his time to his love. Taking place in the aftermath of Julius Caesar’s death and the Sicilian Revolt, the story switches between contrasting destinations and provides a memorable backdrop to famous historical events.

First seen at the beginning of the 17th century, Antony & Cleopatra is another of Shakespeare’s plays to stand the test of time and it now comes to the Barbican to show the latest generation of fans why it has reached such heights.

And it does so with an enormously talented actor brining Cleopatra back to life on the stage. Josette Simon has a range of credits to her name and has worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company before on productions of Macbeth and Golden Girls. Her credits also include Death In Paradise, Casualty and Blake’s 7, amongst many others.

Antony & Cleopatra is at the Barbican from Thursday 30th November 2017.
