Julius Caesar

1 Nov — 18 Dec 2021

Wharf 1 Theatre

JULIUS CAESAR

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kip Williams

Ancient history?

Caesar is riding high – after a string of military victories and prudent political manoeuvres he is the most respected person in Rome. But as word spreads of plans to make him an Emperor, a group of Caesar’s allies and friends gather to discuss their fears. Has the power and adoration gone to his head? Who will take up his mantle after he is gone?

William Shakespeare’s monumental study of the machinations of power and moral corruption will be thrillingly reconceived in this new production by Artistic Director Kip Williams. Set against one of history’s greatest power struggles – the birth of the Roman Empire – the story of Julius Caesar remains shockingly relevant to our world of political populism and ever-shifting allegiances.

In an exciting new format for The Wharf, Julius Caesar will be performed in the round with the audience experiencing this thrilling production from all angles. The result will be an inventive, surprising and dynamic night of theatre that will bring new life to some of the most stirring speeches in Shakespeare’s writing and will put a new face to one of his most iconic characters.

Approx. duration 2hrs 40mins (including interval). Subject to change. More info.
