About the show
Riled by the success and status of the newly returned Julius Caesar, a plot led by Brutus and Cassius ensues to assassinate him to prevent him becoming even more powerful and the King of Rome.
The running time is 1 hour 20 minutes.
Written in 1599 for the opening of The Globe Theatre, Shakespeare's history play/tragedy Julius Caesar, is believed by some to have been written to foreshadow Queen Elizabeth I's death and convey Shakespeare's worry of the potential civil unrest and warn of the threat to the country, left without an heir. A political thriller, Julius Caesar explores public and private struggles, morality and fate.
