Julius Caesar archiveWhen 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. John Godber's version of the Shakespeare classic gives the play both a minimalist and an accessible quality. The compression of the play emphasizes the fact that Julius Caesar is, above all, one of the greatest political thrillers of all time.
