Wed, 26th April, 2017 @ 19:00pm - 22:15pm£7 - £18
★★★★‘Julius Caesar is helmed by Angus Jackson – and he’s brought something with him that delivers a spark of new fire in the air‘WHATSONSTAGE
Angus Jackson directs Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.
★★★★’The great virtue of the production is its nuanced portrayal of the divisions among those conspiring against a dictatorial Caesar.’ GUARDIAN
Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power.
★★★★’At the heart of the show is a triumvirate of excellent performances…the laurel wreaths really belong to James Corrigan, Alex Waldmann and Martin Hutson as Mark Antony, Brutus and Cassius respectively. All rising young stars of the RSC, this trio spar and spark off each other with volatility, energy and real commitment, and they are a joy to watch.’WHATSONSTAGE
Our Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.
★★★★’Everything about this production feels right’ The Guardian
