"The Hysterical History of Cleopatra" by D. M. Larson

Copyright (c) 2017 All Rights Reserved

(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!"


Thank you all for coming. We have a major PR problem here. The Ptolemy family is a royal pain in the Nile and we have to do something about it.

How we long for the days of Alexander the Great.

He's grrreat!

Things were great then.

The Ptolemies had to go and ruin it all. They are a bunch of greedy, self-centered rulers with no concern for the common people.

What ruler has ever cared about the people?

Siri? Were any of the pharaohs good to the people?

Ramesses II is considered the most successful Pharaoh in Egyptian history making Egypt very rich and prosperous.

How about you, Alexa? Can you top that?

Queen Hatshepsut achieved a peaceful rule over a prosperous Egypt for over 20 years and created many public works programs that benefited the people.

The people are very restless under Ptolemy rule. Perhaps it is time for a queen again.

A queen? Really?

Indeed. At long last, I believe we have a Ptolemy we can get behind. Her name is... Cleopatra.

(NUT and other cast members get the audience to cheer)

All hail Cleopatra!

Cleopatra has been joint ruler with her father Ptolemy XII Auletes and then with her brothers Ptolemy XIII and XIV.

The guys keep dying though.

They were holding Cleopatra back.

Why support any of the Ptolemies? They are proud Greeks and refuse to even learn the Egyptian language.

Cleopatra is fluent in Egyptian and Greek as well as 7 other languages. She is the first Ptolemy to learn our language.

She says she is the reincarnation of the Egyptian goddess Isis.

Is that true?

Isis is the goddess of health, marriage and wisdom...

Never mind, Alexa. The important thing is that we finally have a Queen we can support. And we need to make this work. With the Roman armies growing in power, we have to make ourselves strong again or we'll be overrun.

The Roman armies are led by Julius Caesar.

He wishes to reunite the lands once ruled by Alexander the Great.

He's grrreat.

Without a united Egypt under a strong ruler, I'm afraid Rome will conquer us. So I have gathered all of you here to develop a PR campaign to get the people behind our Queen.

Let's start with a branding campaign. We'll come up with a new slogan and a cool logo.

What about something with snakes?


I love snakes.

No snakes.

We can do something with the whole Isis angle. Let's play up the whole Egyptian goddess reincarnation idea.

I'll write some speeches in Egyptian that she can address to the people.

I'll schedule some rallies around Egypt. We'll want to get her out with the people.

Parades! We must have a grand parade all around Egypt. She'll arrive at every major city in style.

And we'll end with a river cruise back down the Nile to Alexandria.

One of Cleopatra's favorite places there is the Royal Library of Alexandria which is one of the most important libraries in the world where many famous scholars have studied.

We can end the tour at the library and solidify her image as a wise ruler who will guide her nation with intelligence. Let's go to work, people.

Most of the books in the library are written on papyrus scrolls made from the papyrus plant.

The library was created by Ptolemy I and contains an estimated 400,000 scrolls and books.

Ptolemy I is said to be a descendant of Heracles.

Alexandria is named in honor of Alexander the Great.

He's grrrreat!

Will you two give it a rest?
