The Royal Shakespeare Company returns to the Roundhouse with a ten-week season of eight acclaimed Shakespeare productions including Julius Caesar.
As Julius Caesar's strength and popularity look set to propel him to the imperial throne, those closest to him act to prevent what they fear will become a dictatorship. A masterpiece of political powerplay and manipulation, Julius Caesar examines the conflict between one man's ambition and the good of the state.
'The company acting is impeccable in Lucy Bailey’s stormy production'
Sunday Times ****
'A visceral Julius Caesar that captures the chaos of a divided city. Impressive physical staging'
'Lucy Bailey's innovative take on the classic is a breath of fresh air'
'Greg Hicks powerfully captures the mixture of grandiosity and fearful frailty that makes up Caesar's character, while Sam Troughton finds a similar ambivalence in Brutus, a genuinely good man fatally flawed by both self-righteousness and an inability to make the right decisions. John Mackay suggests both the chippiness and the emotional neediness of Cassius, and Darrell D'Silva is a superb Mark Antony, perpetually hung-over, bleary, overweight and a shameless rabble-rouser of an orator'
