By William Shakespeare
Translated by Christopher Chen as part of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Play on! Commissioning program.
A co-production with UMKC Theatre
Not your average tale of star-crossed lovers, this retelling of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra mingles passion with power, misunderstanding with treachery, all as the fate of the Empire hangs in the balance. Love, lust, adventure, dramatic empresses, poisonous snakes, and the very birth of Christianity. What more could you ask for?
