Canon Fodder: Antony and Cleopatra

posted in: News | 0

With our 2014 production of Othello GreenStage will complete Shakespeare's canon! We will have performed all 39 of the Bard's 37 plays. Yes, there are a few extras; we're counting Cardenio and The Two Noble Kinsmen as Shakespeare's, even if a few other pens may have been involved. We're celebrating the canon with a look back at every play.

GreenStage performed Antony and Cleopatra in 2011, featuring Lyam White and Allison Strickland in the title roles. The cast also included Wilson Carpenter, Matthew Gilbert, Jalyn Green, Kyle McAuley, Geoff Ramler, Caleb Slavens, Daniel Stoltenberg, Bryan Sullivan, Kate Sumpter, Mckenna Turner, and Amy Williams. Read the show program from that summer here.

Most scholars believe this Shakespearean tragedy was first performed in about 1607.
