Julius Caesar
Information for Julius Caesar at The Civic, Barnsley (Play). When Caesar returns to Rome from the wars a virtual dictator, Brutus and his republican friends resolve that his ambition must be curbed - which in Rome can mean only one thing: the great general must be assassinated. But once the deed is done, the idealistic conspirators must reckon with the forces of a new power bloc, led by Mark Antony and Caesar's nephew Octavius. When their armies close at Philippi, will Caesar's ghost be avenged? Opposing dictatorship and republicanism, private virtue and mob violence, Shakespeare's tense drama of high politics reveals the emotional currents that flow between men in power. Icarus Theatre Collective inject fresh relevance into Shakespeare's political thriller by setting it in the near future. Using digital screens and creative graphics to underscore the parallels between the schemers of Ancient Rome, the turmoil of Shakespeare's England, and the power of fake news to destroy our world today. All performances Creative Captioned.
