Antony & Cleopatra - Thursday
Llanover Hall Arts Centre • Thu 14 March 2019 19:30-22:00
One of Shakespeare's most harrowing, yet unexplored tragedies, questioning the vulnerability of our own moral compasses when in the face of conflict. Despite the play being named after the lovers, Antony and Cleopatra is not a love story in the conventional sense. Here, love is not a pure and immovable force but is continually re-contextualised when faced with honour, politics and above all, survival. Here is a play that follows the destructive path of following passion over reason, resulting in fatal consequences.
