Julius Caesar

by William Shakespeare
Royal Shakespeare Company

24 November 2017 - 20 January 2018 / 19:15, 13:30, 13:00
Theatre

Angus Jackson directs Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.
 
Caesar returns from war, an all-conquering hero, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power. Although Brutus loves Caesar, he is persuaded to kill him for the greater good, and like all conspirators loses control of the consequences.

Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action of the story that continues to define all political backstabbing, with spin and betrayal turning to violence. The cast includes Andrew Woodall in the title role alongside Alex Waldmann as Brutus and Martin Hutson as Cassius.
