I, Cinna (the poet)


The poet Cinna hardly says a word in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar before he's mistaken for someone else and torn to pieces by an angry mob. He's Shakespeare's unluckiest character.

Synopsis


The poet Cinna hardly says a word in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar before he's mistaken for someone else and torn to pieces by an angry mob.


He's Shakespeare's unluckiest character.


Now Cinna searches for the subject of his next poem and invites us, the audience, to write with him, live.


This brilliantly clear introduction to Julius Caesar is a unique and warmly engaging solo show about words and actions, art, protest and power.
