Antony & Cleopatra

Globe Theatre
Prices: £75.00 - £5.00 Book Now

For the first time in ten years, Antony & Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s epic story of love, duty, and power unfolds in the Globe Theatre in a ground-breaking bilingual production using Spoken English and British Sign Language.

Rome is an empire ruled by men. Egypt is a kingdom governed by a woman.

Despite their different cultures, Roman general Antony falls for Egyptian queen Cleopatra. Their passion blazes across two continents, upsets the world order and puts thousands of lives at risk.

Blanche McIntyre (Measure for Measure; Twelfth Night: For One Night Only, Globe) directs Shakespeare’s blockbuster clash of cultures, with Charlotte Arrowsmith (This is Going to Hurt, BBC) as Associate Director and Nadia Nadarajah (Midnight Movie, Royal Court) as Cleopatra.

All performances of Antony & Cleopatra will be captioned.

A BSL overview is coming soon – please check back to this page for details.

Eternity was in our lips and eyes…

Seating Advice

As the Globe Theatre is a circular theatre, your view of the stage and captions will vary, depending on where you are sat or stood. Everyone will have a view of at least one captioning screen.

If you require a view of both the actors using BSL and the captions:

  • Yard standing tickets will offer a good view of the actors using BSL and the captions.
  • If you are booking seated tickets online, click the link marked ‘View recommended seats’. This will filter the seating map to show seats with the best views of the actors using BSL and the captions.
  • Our Ticketing team can also help you choose a seat. You can email them at [email protected], phone 020 7401 9919, or visit the Box Office at Shakespeare’s Globe.
  • Seats with restricted views are clearly marked on the seating map.
