Abbey Shakespeare Players 2009: Antony & Cleopatra

The barge she sat in, like a burnish'd throne
Burn'd on the water

Enobarbus, Act II Sc 2

I am dying, Egypt, dying; only
I here importune death awhile, until
Of many thousand kisses the poor last
I lay up thy lips

Antony, Act IV Sc 15


Mark Antony is one of the three most powerful men in the Roman Empire. But his late-flowering love for the Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra, threatens the political allegiances that hold the empire together.

In Shakespeare’s full-blooded romance, Antony and Cleopatra are torn between their feelings as leaders and lovers, while allegiances form and break between the Roman and Egyptian armies.

Age cannot wither her, nor custom stale
Her infinite variety.

Enobarbus, Act II Sc 2

The stroke of death is as a lover's pinch,
Which hurts, and is desired
