The Royal Shakespeare Company returns to the Barbican with a thrilling new season set in Shakespeare’s Rome MMXVII.

Comprising four of the playwright’s most gripping plays, Coriolanus, Julius Caesar, Antony & Cleopatra, and Titus Andronicus.

One of Shakespeare’s greatest love stories, Antony & Cleopatra continues the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Rome season, picking up the story where Julius Caesar ends.

Known for his fresh and urgent interpretations of Shakespeare, Iqbal Khan directs Josette Simon and Antony Byrne in the title roles.

Singer-songwriter Laura Mvula writes the music for the production.

Antony & Cleopatra will run from 30 November 2017 until 20 January 2018 at the Barbican.


Following Caesar’s assassination, Mark Antony has reached the heights of power.

Now he neglects his empire for a life of decadent seduction with his mistress, Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt.

Torn between love and duty, his military brilliance deserts him, and his passion leads the lovers to their tragic end.


The cast features Josette Simon and Antony Byrne.


Directed by Iqbal Khan, with design by Robert Innes Hopkins, lighting by Tim Mitchell, music by Laura Mvula, sound by Carolyn Downing, movement by Villmore James and fights by Kevin McCurdy.
