Ancient history?

Three outstanding performers will realise the entirety of Shakespeare’s most celebrated history play. Starring Geraldine Hakewill, Ewen Leslie and Zahra Newman, and stunningly reconceived by Artistic Director Kip Williams, this production is a thrilling dissection of power and moral corruption.

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?

Join us for a monumental study of power, moral corruption and democracy – that remains shockingly relevant to the modern world.

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.
