ANTONY & CLEOPATRA — Warwick Arts Centre — 2nd-5th March, 2011

"The soldier's pole is fall'n: young boys and girls. Are level now with men..."

The fiercest battle ever fought, the strongest love ever felt -- welcome to every child's playtime. The Warwick University Drama Society's radical reinterpretation of Shakespeare's epic romance places the action of the play within the expanse of imagination that is a children's playground.

War games rage as passions grow, tempers flare up and tantrums are thrown. Antony and Cleopatra kissing in a tree, Enobarbus following his leader and two gangs coming face to face in a game where pax is out and Caesar's coming to get you. Ready or not here they come... Play has never been so serious.

This production of 'Antony and Cleopatra' was originally performed at the Warwick Arts Centre through the Warwick University Drama Society, from the 2nd to the 5th March, 2011. Directed by the founders of Ginterval Theatre and featuring some of its company members. The production introduced Warwick to the Harry Potter version of Zip Zap Boing - Expelliarmus - and The Death Slide.
