(Other Roles to Be Announced)

Antony, Octavius Caesar, and Lepidus are a triumvirate ruling the Roman Empire; but Antony prefers to spend his time at leisure in Egypt as a consort to Queen Cleopatra rather than in Rome. News of his wife's death, and of a threatened revolt by young Pompey, motivates his return, much to Cleopatra's disapproval. This tragic love story is set in the backdrop of the Tulsa Oklahoma race riot of 1921, also known as Tulsa Black Wall Street.
