The Hysterical History of Cleopatra


 Short comedy play about the famous Egyptian Queen


9 or more actors
(as few as 7 with doubling)
2-4 females and 4-6 of any gender

(in order of appearance)

SHU - head of marketing

BABI* - marketing assistant

GEB* - marketing assistant

NUT - marketing assistant that loves snakes

SIRI - Information specialist who wears something like a mysterious cloak with an Apple symbol. She does not like Alexa.

ALEXA - Information specialist who can have an Amazon symbol on her cloak or have an Amazonian look to her. She does not like Siri.

CLEOPATRA** - the Queen of Egypt - need I say more?

SERVANT** - Cleopatra’s administrative assistant

*SIRI’s actor can play CLEOPATRA and ALEXA can play SERVANT if needed - if they double SIRI can have a wig, hood or mask that hides her face so we can easily become CLEOPATRA in the next scene)

BABI and GEB’s lines can be divided up between other actors if more are available
(This is an interactive play with audience participation. Before the play begins, some of the actors should practice the following with the audience.  NUT is the chant leader but others in the cast can help. If extra actors are available, you can have someone appear with a sign with the audience phrases in bold)
  • When NUT cues you with “Cleopatra” say - “All hail Cleopatra!”
  • When NUT gets excited about snakes, go “Hiss!”
  • When Alexander the Great is mentioned say, “He’s grrreat!”
  • When you hear “Little Caesar” say “Pizza! Pizza!”

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
