Kim Cattrall is set to return to the city of her birth to star as Cleopatra in Antony and Cleopatra at the Liverpool Everyman. The show will run for a limited season from 14 October to 13 November. Antony will be played by Jeffrey Kissoon and the production will be directed by Janet Suzman.
Cattrall, who is finishing a sold-out run in Private Lives at the Vaudeville Theatre, was born in Liverpool and recalls going to the Everyman as a child with her aunt. Her family left Liverpool to move to Canada when she was a small child but she returned to visit family. She later returned to the UK to study at LAMDA before pursuing a successful career in the United States.
She seems to be having a good run at the moment with a role in Roman Polanski's latest film The Ghost as well as a string of good stage roles in London – not to mention the eagerly anticipated Sex and the City sequel. What will her next move be?
