Antony and Cleopatra
Part of 2006–2007 Complete Works Festival. A production by the Royal Shakespeare Company
Cast & Crew
During the performance I saw, there was a severe storm, which caused some of the lighting circuits to cut out. The stage manager came on, and was just asking the audience to leave in an orderly manner, when the lights came back; which meant that Cleopatra, Charmian and Iras had the tricky task of picking up the scene again. After a brief whispered consultation, they restarted from about ten lines before the place where they had had to stop.
