Caesar returns in triumph to Rome, and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated elite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital.

Nicholas Hytner’s production thrusts the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral, and the chaos that explodes in its wake. Starring Ben Whishaw (The Danish Girl, Skyfall) as Brutus; Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones) as Cassius; David Calder (The Lost City of Z) as Caesar; and David Morrissey (Hangman, The Walking Dead).

 

Please note: this production contains several scenes of a violent and bloody nature and gunshots. This production also contains strobe lighting. Running time of the production is 2 hours 15 minutes.
