Antony & Cleopatra premiered at The Brick in Brooklyn, NYC in August 2016 as part of their Shakespeare in the Theater Festival.
We worked on this production for almost a year: 9 months on Skype, 7 weeks in person. The stripped down, 2-man production that we brought to The Brick, and are now taking on tour across Europe was influenced by our long rehearsal phase through Skype and the task of Luke and Ron playing all of the characters, sometimes 5 of them in one scene. Our adaptation compacted and distilled Shakespeare’s epic play to an intimate 8 characters and 90 minutes, finding the heart of this play rests in the fragility of human relationships.
