Antony & Cleopatra

October 28 – November 1, 1997

Alternate Title Antony and Cleopatra
Production Language English
Country of Origin England, United Kingdom
Description Energized by fast-paced performances, Britain’s acclaimed Northern Broadsides eschew elaborate production values to reveal an Antony & Cleopatra stripped of fussiness and pretension. From the very first line of the play, the language and rhythm of Shakespeare’s Elizabethan English is powered by the vigor and vitality of Northern England’s regional voice.
Northern Broadsides’ founder Barrie Rutter, a former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, directs and stars as a formidable Antony; Ishia Bennison’s Cleopatra rounds out the "heaven-sent casting" (The London Guardian). Hailed as one of Britain’s most exciting new theatrical companies, Northern Broadsides’ production of Antony & Cleopatra is as invigorating as it is unpredictable.
