Nicholas Hytner directs a new take on the Shakespeare classic…
When Caesar (David Calder) returns to Rome in triumph, people pour out of their homes to celebrate. But the elite are alarmed by the autocrat’s popularity, and they conspire to bring him down. After his assassination, civil war erupts on the streets of the capital. Starring Ben Whishaw, Michelle Fairley, and David Morrissey, Nicholas Hytner’s production thrusts the audience into 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.
*This production contains some strobe lighting.
