[PAST EVENT] Virginia Shakespeare Festival: Antony & Cleopatra
Following on the heels of last season's hit production of Julius Caesar, Artistic Director Christopher Owens continues down the Nile to its sequel and two of Shakespeare's most passionate title characters. It's more than a decade since the downfall of Brutus and Cassius and the triumvirate of Octavius Caesar, Lepidus, and Marc Antony are the three pillars that now hold up the empire. This empire however proves not large enough for the egos of these three and the world that is Rome (and Egypt) is about to be torn apart. Ambition, love, and lust collide as titanic figures try to grab more than just their share. A tragedy that includes huge elements of humor, the show has one surprising twist of mood after another on the way to its fateful end.
Note: adult situations, recommended for ages 15 and up
