'Antony & Cleopatra'


Railway Institute


23rd - 28th February 1953


A. G. Revill

Our second production of 'Antony & Cleopatra' came 20 years after our first, staged in 1933. Both of these productions were directed by George Revill who was, perhaps, the most influential and active member of the company in it's early years, directing and acting in many plays between 1920 and 1955.

The play was presented in three acts with intervals between each and saw two of our greatest leading actors of the time, Frank Garratt and Jean Wood in the title roles of the doomed lovers.

We hope to be able to add more information and photographs from this production soon.
