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.

Othello (2015) and Much Ado About Nothing (2012).
