Best known for the love story of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare did not stop there. Antony and Cleopatra, one of his last romantic plays, is an epic unravelling of life and death, passion and hatred, filtered through peace and war in a narrative that circles the lives of two prominent figures during the dictatorship of Octavius Caesar.

Through 11/5. $18-46, times vary. The Blackfriars Playhouse, 10 S. Market Street, Staunton, VA. (540) 851-1733.
