Julius Caesar (2007)
Directed by Maya Gabrielle Talbot
Rome, a democracy, has a leader who wishes to be a dictator, a king. Is this death for democracy? Will Romans no longer be free men? What is to be done about Julius Caesar?
Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s first great tragedy. It tells the story of the conspiracy to kill Caesar, his assassination, and the civil war that followed, as Caesar’s ghost bloodily pursued the chief murderers across the Roman world.
Ambition, idealism, conspiracy, murder, civil chaos and war propel this play forward at a furious speed. It is words and spin that prove the most dangerous weapons in the battle to win the hearts and minds of the people.
