Antony and Cleopatra William Shakespeare

Both my ignorance of Roman history and the sparse annotations in this edition of Shakespeare's "sequel to Julius Caesar" made the text difficult. Maybe seeing it performed will help.
The original edition did not indicate where acts or scenes began or ended. But if you define "whenever everybody goes offstage" as a scene change, the play consists of a large number of very short scenes. Add to this stage indications such as "Enter Caesar, with his army" and a plethora of minor characters with only a handful of lines each, and you understand why this play is not often staged.
