Shakespeare’s Globe’s Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole directs the Bard’s tense drama of high politics.

Exploring themes of opposing dictatorship, republicanism, private virtue and mob violence, Julius Caesar charts the story of the title character. When Caesar returns from war a virtual dictator, Brutus and his republican friends plot his assassination. When the deed is done, the perpetrators must reckon with the forces of a new power led by Mark Antony and Caesar’s nephew Octavius.
