Show details

Synopsis


William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar in one act!


Same story. Same words. In one act. Blink and you'll miss it.


Shakespeare can often feel intimating or only for a select few.


However Shakespeare is exciting, thrilling and (most importantly) for EVERYONE.


Fearful that Caesar will become a tyrant, his friends plot to assassinate him in order to save Rome.


But the conspirators' high principles clash with personal malice and ambition, and as they vie to manipulate the mob, the nation is plunged into bloody civil war.


A taut, profound drama exploring power and betrayal, Julius Caesar exposes the chasm between public appearance, political rhetoric and bitter reality.
