Julius Caesar

Date: 17 Aug 2021

Caesar is riding high – after a string of military victories and prudent political manoeuvres he is the most respected person in Rome.

But as word spreads of plans to make him an Emperor, a group of Caesar’s allies and friends gather to discuss their fears. Has the power and adoration gone to his head? Who will take up his mantle after he is gone?

Directed by Kip Williams, William Shakespeare’s monumental study of the machinations of power and moral corruption will be performed in the round with the audience experiencing this production from all angles. Geraldine Hakewill, Ewen Leslie and Zahra Newman will perform all the roles in the production.

Set against one of history’s greatest power struggles – the birth of the Roman Empire – the story of Julius Caesar remains shockingly relevant to our world of political populism and ever-shifting allegiances.
