When Caesar returns to Rome a virtual dictator, Brutus and the pro-democracy senators foresee the demise of the Republic in the powerful hands of this celebrated general. As fear spreads and conspiracy is sown, Caesar's days are numbered.
Brutus wrestles with his conscience but, as measured argument gives way to murder, he and the conspirators must reckon with a new power led by Mark Antony and Caesar's nephew, Octavius. As the mob burns Rome, and armies clash by night, the future of the Republic hangs by a thread. Can democracy survive?
Building on the brilliant success of King Lear in 2016, Julius Caesar will bring together theatre legends Julian Glover (Game of Thrones) and Lynn Farleigh (Pride and Prejudice) with the stars of tomorrow from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School for a contemporary production of Shakespeare's most famous political drama.
