Julius Caesar. A divisive leader who holds awesome power.
Concerned that Caesar poses a threat to democracy, revolutionaries take the violent decision to murder him. As the world spins out of control, chaos, horror, and superstition rush in to fill the void. Civil war erupts and a new leader must rise: but at what cost?
Shakespeare's political thriller exposes the ambiguous morality in trying to shift power. As we rage against the crises surrounding us, how far will each of us go for our political principles?
Join Icarus Theatre Collective for a boldly modern re-telling of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Set in the near future, the show combines state-of-the-art digital technology, fully integrated Creative Captioning, and theatrical magic to highlight the parallels between the gossips and doom-mongers of Ancient Rome, and the power of fake news to destroy our world today.
Directed by Max Lewendel as the latest in a series of plays devised to appeal equally to theatre fans from the hearing, deaf community, as well as the online generation.
