Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar"

Our production of Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" moves the action from ancient Rome to a modern military dictatorship around about now, such as in Myanmar today or Argentina a few years ago.  Modelling Caesar on people like General Pinochet, men driven by ambition who ruled with fear, we try to capture what makes Brutus truly "...the noblest Roman of them all". 

With Jess Metcalfe, Dre Archer, Sophie Thomas, Ciara Wilson, Lily Small, Beth Meadows, Laura Burt, Hannah Driouich, Holly Mecrow, Eliza Potter, Lauren Galloway and Leah Bradley-Twiddale we have twelve superb actors who take us right to the heart of the play.
