On Thursday, December 6th at 2:00 pm, The Grand projects on the Coastal Eye Care Screen a live, high-definition simulcast of Shakespeare’s classic historic tragedy “Antony and Cleopatra” will be broadcast live from the National Theatre, starring Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo as the fated couple in this great tale of politics, passion and power. Caesar and his assassins are dead. General Mark Antony now rules alongside his fellow defenders of Rome. But at the fringes of a war-torn empire the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war. Director Simon Godwin returns to National Theatre Live screens with this hotly anticipated production, following previous broadcasts of Twelfth Night, Man and Superman and The Beaux’ Stratagem.
