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 Richard Clews (Caius Ligarius/Flavius), Richard Copestake (Metellus Cimber), Charles Daish (Decius Brutus), Phillip Edgerley (Casca), Endy McKay (Octavius' Servant), Andrew Melville (Popilius Lena/Cinna the Poet), Gary Oliver (Mark Antony), Merryn Owen (Cinna), Rachel Pickup (Portia wife of Brutus), Patrick Romer (Cicero/Lepidus), Clifford Samuel (Trebonius), Christopher Saul (Julius Caesar), Adrian Schiller (Caius Cassius), Simon Scott (Artemidorous/Murellus), Rhys Swinbourn (Lucius), Zubin Varla (Marcus Brutus), Sharlene Whyte (Calpurnia wife of Caesar).
