About the show

"Which death is preferably to every other? The unexpected."

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.

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.

There are multiple death scenes (stabbings, murders) and mentions of suicide. Haze and flashing lights also appear in this production.
