Thursday 22nd March, 7pm
Ben Whishaw & Michelle Fairley play Brutus and Cassius, David Calder Caesar, & David Morrissey Mark Antony. Caesar returns in triumph to Rome & the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital. Hytner’s production will thrust the audience into the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral & the chaos that explodes in its wake.
