The Tragedy of Julius Caesar

44 BCE, Julius Caesar – conqueror, statesman, lover, politician – has been named Dictator for Life by the Roman Senate. Fearing Caesar’s rise will doom the Republic, a conspiracy forms to kill the great man. Brutus, protégé and friend to the great man, is torn between his affection for Caesar and his devotion to the ideals of Rome. Convinced by his brother-in-law Cassius, Brutus joins the conspiracy, setting into motion the events that lead to the birth of the Roman Empire. A play with neverending modern parallels – (“How many Ages hence shall this our lofty scene be acted over in states unborne, and accents yet unknown?”) – Julius Caesar, is a political thriller with ultimate stakes. Directed by MSF’s Artistic Director Janice L Blixt.
