DetailsThis new version of Julius Caesar is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for 7 to 13 year olds. A company of actors have travelled up and down the land performing their stories. Now they've arrived in Hull to tell a tale of friendship and betrayal. Caesar, Rome's leader, has returned from war stronger than ever, but some of his followers are questioning his powers. The plotting continues... Part of our First Encounters with Shakespeare series, these engaging adaptations are 90 minutes long, use Shakespeare's original language and ask audiences to participate in the story. They are a fantastic first step into Shakespeare for children, families and schools.
