Tim Crouch is an internationally renowned playwright and theatre-maker.
I, Cinna (the poet) is the fifth play in a series about Shakespeare's minor characters.
Originally commissioned by the RSC as part of the 2012 World Shakespeare Festival.
Tim's recent play Beginners premiered at the Unicorn in 2018 and won the Writers' Guild Award for Best Play for Young Audiences.
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.
