Shakespeare with a difference at The Memorial Hall

Antony and Cleopatra - Saturday 16th March

Performances at 2pm and 7.30pm

Tickets from IV Florist and the Post Office

 

Acted and directed by a young man who started his career in drama as one of the founder members of SADS.

 

The Scullions are returning with the epic Shakespeare tale of 'Antony and Cleopatra'. Re-imagined in the roaring 20's, we'll be telling this ancient tale through the decadent and party-fuelled lives of the young and disgustingly rich aristocrats of the time or the 'bright young things' and reflect it with the dark and dangerous criminal underworld of prohibition America. 
 

Cleopatra was born to the greatest fortune in Egypt.  Accustomed to such wealth, her life is a constant party of drink, drugs, and fancy dress.  Dubbing herself 'The Queen of the Nile' she and her entourage feel like gods among men but such security calls for some excitement.  By arranged encounter, Cleopatra finds herself the lover of a very dangerous man Mark Antony of Rome and one of a trio of men that run the criminal underworld with an iron fist as 'The Triumvirate'.  As these Worlds collide through their union, feathers will be ruffled and Egypt will never be the same again.
