CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
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.Performers Joseph Arkley (Remus/Artemidorus/Octavius), Adam Burton (Cimber/Titnius), Brian Doherty (Decius Brutus/Poet), Darrell D'Silva (Mark Antony), Noma Dumezweni (Calphurnia), Phillip Edgerley (Flavius/Popilius/Antony's Servan/Volumnius), James Gale (Cicero/Caesar's Servant/Lepidus/Dardanius), Gruffudd Glun (Cinna the Conspirator/Young Cato), Paul Hamilton (Caius Ligarius/Messala), Greg Hicks (Julius Caesar), Tunji Kasim (Romulus/Lucius), John Mackay (Cassius), Patrick Romer (Murullus/Publius/Cinna the Poet), David Rubin (Trebonius/Lucilius), Oliver Ryan (Casca Pindarus), Simone Saunders (Calphurnia's Servant), Sam Troughton (Marcus Brutus), Larrington Walker (Soothsay/Octavius's Servant), Kirsty Woodward (Priestess), Hannah Young (Portia), Samantha Young (Soothsayer's Acoltye).
