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 Alun Reglan (Mark Anthony), Leo Wringer (Brutus), Simon Armstrong (Caesar), Clive Hayward (Cassius), Byron Mondahl (Octavius), Alan Coveney (Casca), Paul Currier (Decius Brutus/Titnius), paul Brendan (Flavius/Lepidus), Marc Geoffrey (Metellus Cimber/Pindarus), Chris Bianchi (Murellus/Cinna the Poet), Dani McCallum (Portia), Dan Winter (Lucilus), Paul Nicholson (Cicero/Clitus), Jonathan Nibbs (Soothsayer/Volumnius), Peter Clifford (Carpenter/Ligarius/Messala), tom Sherman (Trebonius), Cathy Mckinnon (Calphurnia).
