Cleopatra's death by asp is a common myth, largely scientifically disproven.
Set in a broadcast recording center, Anguis is an imagined conversation
between the great pharaoh Cleopatra and a contemporary immunologist. Join
us in the studio as we unpack Cleopatra's story, exploring alternatives to
the fetishised popular truth. A story exploring our responsibility to seek
the truth in a post-truth era. This debut piece from Olivier Award winner
Sheila Atim will feature original music. Commissioned by Avalon and BBC
