Desire and duty collide in Shakespeare's captivating tragedy of politics, passion and power. Mark Antony of Rome and Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, are caught in an all-encompassing love that threatens the Empire. This classic Shakespeare tale is edited by Dame Janet Suzman, who has played Cleopatra twice and directs the 2012 UK production, which stars Kim Cattrall and Michael Pennington.
Janet Suzman was born in Johannesburg, graduated from the University of Witwatersrand, trained at LAMDA, and was at the RSC for a decade playing many of the heroines and culminating in a memorable Cleopatra. She has since pursued a richly varied career; twice winner of the Evening Standard Best Actress Award, she has also received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations, twice won the Liverpool Echo Best Production Award and the TMA Best Production. She has diversified into occasional directing - beginning with her Johannesburg Othello in 1987 - and now teaches, lectures, writes and returns to acting, when the occasion beckons, with relief.
