Angus Jackson directs Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.
Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power.
The Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action.
‘At the heart of the show is a triumvirate of excellent performances’
‘Julius Caesar is helmed by Angus Jackson – and he’s brought something with him that delivers a spark of new fire in the air’
★★★★ What’s On Stage
‘Martin Hutson’s brilliant Cassius…James Corrigan’s Mark Antony is a calculating cynic’
★★★★ The Guardian
Recorded live on 26th April, 2017 in Stratford-upon-Avon
