Tom Mckay, Luke Thompson - 2 hr. 40 mins.
photoWhen Caesar returns to Rome from the wars a virtual dictator, Brutus and his republican friends resolve that his ambition must be curbed - which in Rome can mean only one thing: the great general must be assassinated.

When their armies close at Philippi, will Caesar's ghost be avenged?
Opposing dictatorship and republicanism, private virtue and mob violence, Shakespeare's tense drama of high politics reveals the emotional currents that flow between men in power with themes that still resonate even today.
