Rome was rife with it, Shakespeare wrote about it, Europe experienced it, The Hunger Games continues it – the manipulation of power, politics and people!
The road to hell is paved with honourable intentions... and the conspirators are sharpening their knives.
Repertory’s Julius Caesar takes Shakespeare’s great political tragedy out of Rome and into Europe in the Thirties – a dark period in history when conflicting ideologies affected millions of lives. It sits well. There, as in Caesar’s Rome, it is about the manipulation of politics, power and passion, the use and misuse of power.
Shakespeare’s language is powerful, his people and their passions timeless. Under Julian Anderson’s direction, this Julius Caesar releases the tenderness, the violence and the shocking reality when manipulation leads to murder.
Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare
Directed by Julian Anderson
