Angus Jackson directs Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control. Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power.
The Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action.
“Julius Caesar is helmed by Angus Jackson – and he’s brought something with him that delivers a spark of new fire in the air”
“Robert Innes Hopkins’s magisterial set evokes imperialism at its grandest and functions brilliantly as both the public face of Rome and the crumbling ruins outside its walls. But it is enhanced by the sensitive and articulate lighting of Tim Mitchell, the sound design of Carolyn Dowling and the subtle, evocative music of Mira Calix.” -WhatsOnStage
