‘Eternity was in our lips and eyes, Bliss in our brows’ bent’

— Cleopatra, Act I Scene 3

Following the death of Caesar, Mark Antony is at the helm of the Roman Empire. But his love for Egyptian Queen Cleopatra causes him to neglect his leadership, torn between duty and desire. Shakespeare’s great love story plays out on the Globe stage in all its brilliance and poetic beauty.

Eve Best (House of the Dragon, HBO) and Clive Wood (Henry VI Parts 1, 2 and 3, RSC) play the famously fated couple in our 2014 production.
