Mark Anthony, one of the three rulers of Rome, is in love with Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt. Anthony is summoned back to Rome, where he clashes with another ruler Octavius before returning to Cleopatra in Egypt. Now in battle with Octavius, Anthony, and Cleopatra suffer losses and miscommunication, and both eventually commit suicide. The plot is based on Thomas North's 1579 English translation of Plutarch's Lives(in Ancient Greek). and follows the relationship between Cleopatra and Mark Anthony from the time of the Sicilian revolt to Cleopatra's suicide during the War of Actium,

The main antagonist is Octavius Caesar, one of Anthony's fellow triumvirs of the Second Triumvirate and the first emperor of the Roman EMpire. The tragedy is mainly set in the Roman Republic and Ptolemaic Egypt and is characterized by swift shifts in geographical location and linguistic register as it alternates between sensual, imaginative Alexandria and a more pragmatic, austere Rome.
