Synopsis

Friends, Romans, Countrymen...


Broadcast live from the Bridge Theatre, Shakespeare's ever topical tale of political ambition and treachery in an immersive production by Nicholas Hytner in which the audience are part of the unfolding drama - the street party that greets Caesar’s return, the congress that witnesses his murder, the rally that assembles for his funeral and the chaos that explodes in its wake.

Caesar returns in triumph to Rome and the people pour out of their homes to celebrate. Alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, the educated élite conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital.


Ben Whishaw and Michelle Fairley play Brutus and Cassius, David Calder plays Caesar and David Morrissey is Mark Antony.


Please note that Julius Caesar will contain strobe lighting.
