Iqbal Khan directs Antony & Cleopatra, Shakespeare's tragedy of love and duty, picking up the story where Julius Caesar ends. Following Caesar's assassination, Mark Antony has reached the heights of power but is neglecting his empire for a life of decadent passion with his mistress, Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt.

Torn between love and duty, Antony's military brilliance deserts him, and his infatuation leads the lovers to their tragic end. Iqbal Khan returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company to direct, following his critically acclaimed productions of
Othello (2015) and Much Ado About Nothing (2012).
