Bard Hall Players Present:
Antony and Cleopatra

The Bard Hall Players are thrilled to announce their 2017 winter show: William Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra! In this work of the Bard's mature genius, blending comedy and tragedy, the titular lovers wreak havoc with their larger-than-life personalities across the luxurious backdrop of the ancient Mediterranean—leaving broken hearts and dead men in their wake. Directed by Joseph Villarin, MD/PhD '17, and featuring students from P&S, Mailman, CDM, Nursing, Narrative Medicine, PT, and GSAS, this production promises a level of spectacle worthy of BHP's golden 50th Anniversary!

Thursday March 9, 8pm

Saturday March 11, 2pm (matinee)
Saturday March 11, 8pm
