Julius Caesar

Noël Coward Theatre (Albery), St Martin's Lane, London

The dictator must be assassinated. But who will replace him?

Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s great political thriller. The tragedy of Julius Caesar finds dark, contemporary echoes in modern Africa and these resonances are explored in the Royal Shakespeare Company's exciting new production.

Julius Caesar is directed by RSC Chief Associate Director Gregory Doran.

Doran’s most recent productions include Shakespeare’s ‘lost play’ Cardenio, re-imagined as part of the RSC’s 50th birthday celebrations, as well as his 2008 production of Hamlet.
