Seattle Shakespeare Company’s Antony and Cleopatra features faculty member Amy Thone and former student Hans Altwies in title roles, among other Cornish participants.
The Cornish community factors heavily in Seattle Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra, which closes November 18. Amy Thone stars as Cleopatra, Hans Altwies as Antony in the production (pictured). Thone teaches in the theater department and Altwies trained at the college for two years. They are joined by another faculty member, Terry Weagant, and and alum Chris Maslen [TH ’04]. Weagant plays Charmian and Maslen doubles up as Menas and Thidias.
The tragedy Antony and Cleopatra by William Shakespeare is one of his most familiar and most personal. The Roman General and the Egyptian Queen. Their romance gave birth to an empire, but their fiery longing came at a price. Caught between desire and duty, Antony and Cleopatra’s love affair shook the foundations of the known world. Power, politics, and passion collide in Shakespeare’s captivating tragedy.
The production is under the direction of John Langs, who staged the recent SSC’s production of Hamlet.
Last performances are this weekend, closing November 18 at the Playhouse at Seattle Center (formerly Intiman Playhouse). Tickets & More Information.
