Currently editing script for performance in Adelaide mid 2015. Spending a fair bit of time pondering with (script) age difference between the two lovers. My leaning is to older Antony infatuated with younger queen who has a complex blend of affection and need for protection. Early date yet, would love to hear anyone's thoughts on this challenging but all important pair of lovers

Yeah i guess it would be quite awesome for you to perform the lover of a gorgeous pricess Cleopatra! The play extends across the Empire probably around 27th century!! It's cool.

Russell,

Looking at the cast of characters page on this site, you definitely would benefit from an older Antony and younger Cleopatra...

It might be worth delving into some of the history books on Cleopatra's reign and death to discern an age for her, but I would hazard a guess at no later than 40...possibly even mid-30's..?

Good luck, and hope all is going well with the production
