To follow Cleopatra, or not to follow

English language musical comedy

This weekend sees the return to the White Isle of the British actress singers Lily Love-Myers and Robyn Cooper with their musical comedy entitled Cleopatra's Key. The duo will be performing the new piece at the Teatro España in Santa Eulalia on Friday 20 November and on Saturday 21 November at the Centro Cultural in Jesus, with both performances starting at 8.30pm.

The piece, written by Love-Myers features original music composed by Omar Shahryar and is entirely in English. It was originally shown at London's Bridewell Theatre and closely follows the success of their original two works, ‘Thruth's vision. Work Love and I' and ‘Nicola'.

Cleopatra's Key is based on the story of the famous Egyptian Queen, who was imprisoned by the Romans, but instead of letting them publicly parade her through the streets of Rome to humiliate her, she took her own life, letting her poisonous asp bite her.

The story picks up from this point when her two maids are faced with the decision of following her into the afterlife to continue serving her - the problem is that they just don't want to do it. This 60-minute show takes a comic and at the same time profound look at the difficulty of taking responsibility for the decisions we make in our lives and how exciting that can be.

The two stars of the show are lifelong friends and have worked together on many projects. Lowe-Myers has enjoyed starring roles at The Royal Court in London and the Contact Theatre in Manchester, whilst Cooper has worked on many TV series since being a child.

As in previous years the show's organisers and actors will go to the Santa Eulalia Children's Home along with a clown to throw them a party. At the end of each performance, spectators are asked to help in raising money for the home. Last year €800 was raised, doubling the previous year's amount. With the money raised, the organisers have provided an English teaching course and dance classes for the children.

The show has proved very popular so far and it looks like a fun, laughter-filled evening. Advance tickets can be purchased from Holidays in Santa Eulalia and Holy Sport in Ibiza Town. Tickets are priced at €10 for the Jesus show and between €10 and €12 in Santa Eulalia for ground floor or upstairs seating. Tickets can also be purchased from each venue's Box Office from 8pm on the day of the performance.

This London-Ibiza transfer looks like it will have some funny and reflective moments, we say get a ticket for what promises to be a sell out show.
